This sort of injury is pretty hard to make general statements about as all lacerations are different in size and location. In the foot infections are likely so check with your doctor if there is redness and swelling in addition to the pain. If you haven't taken antibiotics already, your doctor might prescribe them.
Nerves can get damaged in lacerations as well which also might explain the pain, and sometimes foreign bodies can get in (e.g. the other player's boot studs). After two weeks the pain should be getting better so seek further medical advice.
