Playing football on boxing day is very special occasion of course you have to look after yourself on Christmas day.
It is hard to back up and play with a stomach full of chicken and Christmas cake but most professional footballers have a light Christmas knowing they may have toplay very soon after.
It's not actually the food that is the problem it is being on your feet most of the day. See I have the twins, four year old twins and they keep me busy from sunrise to sunset so catching a bit of a rest during Christmas day is hard for me, but it is such a great day and I love Christmas so much seeing the smiles on my girls faces is what it's all about.
So I hope you all had a great Christmas day and I'd love to see you all in the stands down here in Sydney playing the Sydney Sky Blues looking to get a win.
