Brain shrinkage in soccer?

According to MSNBC, college-age soccer players may show some degree of brain-tissue shrinkage, a small study has found — adding to evidence that the sport carries a risk of long-term brain injury.

 

Some past studies have found that professional and even college-age soccer players are more likely to show problems with memory and attention than non-players.

 

Have you noticed this at all with your experience in the soccer community?
