Hello,
Toenail detaching can occur in football players due to trauma to the toenail when playing football. Trim your nails properly and wear protective bandages while playing football. If the problem persists or the toenail detaches spontaneously then get it evaluated from a dermatologist to rule out any fungal infection.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
