Eat Like Fran

Lionesses forward Fran Kirby takes us through her pre-match meal 

Fran Kirby was fuelled up and ready to go from the first whistle when England beat Spain 2-0 at Euro 2017.

The 24-year-old opened the scoring with the fastest goal at this year’s tournament, her strike coming in just the second minute.

But what did Fran eat before the game to get her primed for action?

She said: “I like Spaghetti Bolognese as a pre-match meal along with as many carbs as possible.

“I like to have some protein on my plate as well, basically anything that can fuel me for the game.

“And then just before kick-off I’ll have some Lucozade jelly beans to give me that extra bit of energy.

“Some of the girls have a set pre-match meal that they go for, but I just like to eat as much as possible a few hours before kick-off to make sure I have enough energy to run around the pitch.”
