Why are there so many knee injuries in women’s football?

A BBC sport article reports that Research by world governing body Fifa has suggested that female footballers  are between two and six times more likely to suffer ACL injury because of physiological differences such as generally wider hips, which increase the leg’s angle into the knee, and under-developed muscles which prevent the knee from turning in upon landing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/29505871
