Dress warmly before the game and if you are ever on the sidelines don't want to be cold entering the game at any point. Make sure to get your 8 hours of sleep in if you can get 8 hours and wake up earlier like 3 hours before the game if possible good. That way you can get decent food in you and have time to digest. Make sure you eat well the night before as well it's even more important with early morning games. That's all I've got.

Indeed, sleep well and make sure you stretch it out. Also, nick's right, be sure to eat beforehand! Your body's going to need plenty of energy and if you neglect to eat beforehand, you won't play your best. Have a moderate sized, healthy breakfast.

Yeah and don't have too big of a breakfast. And avoid coffee/tea.
I used to make the mistake of having baked beans and coffee before a match and I used to always get tired quick.

Then during Ramadan when I had to fast, I noticed I was a lot more fit and had my best 3 games in the whole season!
