Thank you for your query
Seems that you have sustained a ligament injury or sprain during playing football. These injuries at times take days to heal. And even then the pain lingers for a while. Although it is nothing to worry about per se but your wrestling may be worsening it. If you can give some more rest, it will heal faster. And you should wear a wrist brace to decrease its movement for a few days. It will speed up the healing.
Hope that helps
God bless you
