Usually, I would have a 5 egg omelet with rashers and cheese. I’d also have a cup of coffee.
Before a match
We stop in a hotel on the way to meet some lads from other parts of the country, and we get an energy bar from our nutritionist. I’d have another cup of coffee before we head on our way to another hotel close to the pitch.
In the hotel, we have a pre-game meal, usually something like chicken, rice and vegetables with some sauce.
Directly after a match
We never really have food, just the usual protein shake and then straight into recovery then.
As always, our nutritionist has a set meal in place for us in a hotel and it’s a full dinner. It’s usually beef, some carbohydrates and vegetables.
As it’s a match day we are allowed to have a treat. Usually these nights I go for pizza (apparently the best fast food for you). I’d normally go with pepperoni, ham, sweetcorn and pineapple.
