Groin muscle injury

My friends and I were playing soccer yesterday. After having played for about 20 minutes, I stretched to reach for a pass from a team mate I later felt a pain around my groin area. It's still very uncomfortable to walk this morning. What is the problem?

Hi Hector
could just be a muscle strain. A strain is just a milder form of teraing. So it should be uncomfortable for a couple of days. A couple of days on Try a bit of heat compresses in the area and some anti inflammatories 9eg Voltaren GT)
There can be other things like herniae which can also occur

If still sore in a week or worsening, go see a Dr/physio.
