The importance of healthy nutrition in soccer
During the match
A team of researchers from the Universidad de Oviedo and the University of San Pablo-CEU in Spain found that back-backs, defensive midfielders and lateral midfielders on average take about 42-52% of their caloric needs in carbohydrates. Goalkeepers and central defenders, on the other hand, consume about 38-47% of it.

It wasn't easy to get good quality ingredients while we were there. For this reason, I worked mainly with what was available, such as pumpkins, carrots, avocados, beetroot, beef and fish.
The diet of the British national team for the World Cup in Russia
The menu is established by the British nutritionist James Collins, who has structured both lunches and dinners on the union of proteins and carbohydrates. So what meat can they eat? Turkey, beef, salmon and mackerel are considered the best and healthiest sources of protein which are lean and easy to prepare. All this variety of meat and fish is always accompanied by pasta or rice, or at least carbohydrates, for a minimum of 5 meals a day. The menu also includes a dessert: a rice pudding. And before the most important matches, the "protocol" provides scrambled eggs and baked beans on toast.
