Best Answer

People tend to have a main meal of pasta/chicken/spaghetti or fish about 3-4 hours before playing. Foods like those aren't exactly superfoods but give a continuous source of energy for a match. Drinking lots of water or other isotonic fluids is really important too -- a 3% loss of fluids can reduce endurance by 20.

Pasta is the most common meal for football players before a game. Other foods include Jaffa cakes, which most professional clubs advocate. Rio Ferdinand and Djibril Cisse have been seen eating Jaffa cakes during football matches.
