Best Answer

There are no timeouts in soccer because there are not very many times when stopping the game for it would be completely fair to the other team. For example, it would be unfair for a defense to call timeout while the attackers are on a 1v1 breakaway. Soccer is a fast-paced game with a continuous clock. That said, there are usually many opportunities for players to rest and hydrate during injuries, substitutions, etc. In summary, it is likely that introducing timeouts into soccer would promote unfairness and disrupt the flow of the game.
