Cardiac arrest: There are huge numbers of soccer players in the world. Some who have congenital sudden death risk will die when they are young. 'So many' is actually probably not that many statistically. Because soccer is a high degree of exertion, one would however expect more chance of cardiac arrest than say playing golf or curling.
