You disagree that I said that a bigger risk would be an injury?
The nature of the game would be "a friendly" and any footballer who can't move or position himself properly on the pitch has no need to be on the pitch for that match.
My soon-to-be-ex messed his knee up in training the day before playing Man Utd. He never played again.
But the players will be showing respect and not being so competative if they've been briefed properly.
Having said that: I can trip over a matchstick sometimes, and if you take it away I'll fall over the gap
