It depends how severe the tear is. If it is truly minor, the doctor can prescribe a specialized brace for you to wear. You will have to stop play soccer for a while to allow the meniscus to heal. If the tear isn’t so minor, you could need surgery. The only way to tell is by MRI or at least a thorough orthopedic exam. Make an appointment with your doctor soon. A meniscus tear is not a small matter and proper treatment is crucial for you to keep playing soccer.
Good luck!
