I think I have sciatic nerve pain, it might have been brought on by a kick of the football. Is this a common footballers injury?

In brief: Given Your Pain

I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you.
There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether.

In brief: Sciatic nerve pain

Sciatic nerve pain is a pain that starts in the low pain and radiates down the leg.
It is a common injury in sports that have a lot of running and contact involved. An aggressive kick of a ball can certainly lead to a sciatica.
