Best Answer

The heading of a soccer ball must first occur if the ball is above the waist of the player attempting to do the header. Secondly it is advisable to head the ball on the forehead as this will allow you to direct the football and can generate power if you move your neck backwards and then forward to hit the ball. lastly don't close your eyes before, during or after you head the ball. This may cause you to 'mis-head' the ball.

If someone kicks the ball at you very hard you could possibly get a concussion. Unfortunately your neck would most likely snap back when you get hit.
