The English Football Association will ask FIFA to investigate whether former players have dementia as a consequence of brain damage from playing the game. Garrett Celek Jersey . Three members of Englands 1966 World Cup squad - Martin Peters, Nobby Stiles and Ray Wilson - have Alzheimers, family members told The Mirror on Saturday.Concerns have grown in Britain about the impact of head injuries after campaigning by the family of former England striker Jeff Astle, whose death in 2002 was attributed to repeatedly heading heavy, leather balls. English FA medical head Ian Beasley is seeking assistance from world soccers governing body to help determine if there are definitive long-term health dangers from playing the game, and if prospective players should be warned.We are taking some research questions to FIFA imminently to ask, Can you help us in trying to find out if dementia is more common in ex-professional footballers? Beasley said.The trouble is we just dont know .Its a massive undertaking to try and decide whether theres an association between having played professional football and cognitive decline - dementia you might call it - commonly brain damage causing functional impairment over time. We just dont know.Its always tempting to say It must be. But were not sure.Last year, USAs Soccer Federation recommended a ban on headers for players 10 and under in a bid to address concerns about the impact of head injuries. Nobby Stiles is one of three members of Englands 1966 squad suffering from dementia Beasley, who is also the England team doctor, wants researchers to assess whether the severity of any brain damage depends on which position the person played, how many games they played, and at which level.The hope is (FIFA) will tell us one way or another, Beasley said. This is a health and safety issue in the end, and thats what it will come down to. You may still want to be a professional footballer but at least we can advise you what the chances are of something irreversible happening to you.FIFA chief medical officer Jiri Dvorak was not aware of the FA seeking specific research into links between footballers brain trauma and dementia.We have very little evidence that would substantiate that assumption for football players, Dvorak said at the Football Medicine Strategies conference in London, which was also attended by ex-Chelsea club doctor Eva Carneiro.But thats the reason why we are also studying the long-term changes of former professional male and female footballers. Not only for brain dysfunction, but also early onset of osteoarthritis.We are looking at the long-term changes without having any suspicions yet.You can watch the Sky Sports documentary - Concussion: The Impact of Sport - right now On Demand.

Stadler, who sits atop the leaderboard at 9-under-par 204, entered the day up by three shots, but the rest of the field could not shoot low enough to catch the American. Stadler is seeking his second win on the European Tour. The 34-year-old held a 3-shot lead over Frenchman Victor Riu after the second round, but Riu carded a 2-over 73 and dropped into a tie for second place at 5-under 208. He is tied with Thongchai Jaidee, who shot a 69 at Le Golf National. U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer is alone in fourth place at 3-under 210 after shooting a 70 on Saturday. Matthew Baldwin (70) and Bernd Wiesberger (71) are both right behind Kaymer at 2-under. Defending Alstom Open de France champion Graeme McDowell is eight shots off the pace at 1-under and he is tied for seventh with Robert Karlsson (70), Damien McGrane (72), Michael Hoey (73) and Mark Foster (73). Saturdays lowest round was a 3-under 68 turned in by Julien Quesne, who is at even-par for the week. Stadlers lead was not always so comfortable on Saturday. In fact, Riu started his round off strong and was able to pull even with the leader at one point. Up by three shots to begin the day, Stadler parred his first two holes before dropping a shot with a bogey at No. 3. Riu made birdies at both five and nine, while Stadler rounded out his front nine with six straight pars. The duo, who were paired together, shared the lead att 9-under heading to No. Will Redmond Jersey. 10. Then the wheels started to come off for Riu, starting with a bogey on the par-4 10th hole. Stadler countered Rius bogey with a birdie to move two shots ahead. Riu picked himself up briefly with a birdie at 11, but back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13 put him three shots back. Riu made birdie at 14 before making three straight bogeys from 15. He made par at 18 to finish his round. Stadler, on the other hand, cruised to six straight pars before making his second bogey of the round at No. 17, dropping his lead to four. He too parred the 18th and finished with a 72. "I got about what I deserved out of my game today," Stadler said. "I didnt play that great, made a whole lot of pars and did not have nearly as many looks as I had the last couple days, but you cant expect to play that well for four days in a row." Stadler understood how tough the course was playing, so he was pleased with his round. "I knew I really didnt have to do anything crazy today," he said "A couple less would have been nice, but overall Im happy the way it went." Jaidee had one of the better rounds on the day, making four birdies at seven, eight, 13 and 16. He also made bogey at the third and 18th holes. NOTES: Just three players (Quesne, Jaidee and Wade Ormsby) were able to break 70 on Saturday ... Stadler is looking to become the first American to win the Open de France since Barry Jaekel in 1972 ... With no bogey-free rounds on Saturday, there have been just two all week (Stadler in round one, Victor Dubuisson in round two).
