Timing of injuries during football matches
The following paper (and the references) regarding the timing of
injuries during football matches might be of interest:
Takahashi M, Fukuoka S, Nagano A. Evaluation of team-doctor actions during
football games in Japanese professional football. J Sci Med Sport (2008),
From these findings, the first 15 minutes and the last 30 minutes of
normal time are the most risky. Serious injury becomes more likely towards
the end of the match.
