Don't eat complex carbohydrates before a game when your body takes too much energy on the inside to digest and you will end up feeling more hungry later on. I'd suggest eating something with a even amount of protein fat and carbohydrates(but stay away from something complex and stuff with high fructose corn syrup). If anything read the book Enter The Zone by Barry Sears, it is very interesting to read

Do not eat carbs my team mate passed out in a game cause carbs turn straight to sugar then u crash.Definitely do not eat a baked potato cause you will get all jacked up once you start playing.

I have played footall (soccer) compeditavely for over 8 years...before every game our team eats bananas and protein shakes and drink ALOT of water...wait a while after the game before having too much sugar...u will feel sick...protein shakes are very easy to make...u just make a normal smoothie and add protein power..it really helps our team (eat and drink about an hour before the game)Also NO SUAGR the night before..the sugar doesnt catch up to you until the next day and it will slow u down

i would eat a banana with a little but of peanut butter the morning of the game...or a hour before the game. it will help to give you energy and protein. The night before i would sugggest eating pasta of some sort and chicken. But the bagels is also a very good idea.

In my experience don't eat any kinds of meats like chicken because then it will hurt your stomach while you are trying to run.I also read not to eat any protein like fish or protein bars.You can eat breads and bagels though.

Breads and Bagels would be the best thing to eat before a football game.

The night before a footballr game i suggest eatting pasta with absolutely no pop.ON the day of eat a bagel with cream chesse&&water

I am a football Player and I think that's bagels aren't good right before a game. Eat a baked potato and some scrambled eggs the night before or on the morning of the game.

"> "> ">I play football quite a bit and I think that anything with carbs or starch is good like any pasta or potatoes, but it needs to be eaten with at least two hours to digest the food. Always eat lite immediately before the game, a good breakfast with eggs and a banana is good. A small bit of fruit is usually good if you want a snack before the game. Plus all the water your body will hold. "> "> ">The Best Thing To Have Before A Match Is porridge eat this for breakfast and lots of water then about a half an hour before have a banana and if you want to have lucasade put only a couple of sips before and during ;) ">The morning of your match be up at least 4 hours beforehand. Gor breakfast have cereal (Eg: Cornflakes, weatabix, Rice Krispies or Porridge) Do not eat anything coated in chocolate and do not add extra sugar. Top you bowl up with fresh fruit (Eg Strawberries,raspberries, grapes or bananas). Have a glass of juice or water. Make sure you drink plenty of water before and after the match, if you are hungry before the match eat a banana because it has slow releasing energy and won't make you have a stich when you are playing. About an hour before the match drink something like a lucozade sport for an energy boost and keep drinking it through play.

You should eat banana, but eat it about 2-3 hours before you eat. Another thing you can do is, the night before your football game, eat pasta. Pasta is rich in fiber and has a complex carbohydrates which is what athletes need.

Middle school football teams should play one game a week. Two if necessary.If playing two games a week, the days should probably be Tuesday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday.I believe that it should be one game a week. That way you will have enough time to improve before you go into another game.

The score of any football game before it begins is: 0 - 0 Seems to me that nobody has scored any points before the game starts.

The US are rubbish at football it isn't an Americans game. Its british simple. The US have never won the World cup before. Most of the best footballers are signed with English football clubs they havn't got a chance in the world. They should also stop calling it soccer because FOOTBALL was invented before what the Americans call football eg American football so therefore it should be called all over the world football and it was invented by the BRITISH cumon. jacobfoulds@hotmail.co.UK The US are rubbish at football it isn't an Americans game.

Don't eat too much. You should have "carbed up" the night before, and you shouldn't eat much on game day. Hydration is very critical, and you need to start the game with a few sips of water, partularly if it's warm or hot. Something with protein in it so you will have lots of energy. You are supposed to be done eating an hour before you have to play, so your food has time to digest. It is better to play a game of soccer on an empty stomach rather than a full one.

The ball should be declared unplayable before the game. Several balls are approved by the referee for every game and should be interchangable . ou merely exclude the nonconforming ball.
