Five Steps For Reducing The Risk Of Injury When Playing Virtual Soccer

 

Keep warm
turn the central heating up
or wear that matching scarf and jumper
that your auntie knitted you
two Christmases ago

Always wear shin pads
and if you don't have shin pads
then a Readers Digest
down the front of each sock
will do nicely

Don't aggravate
an injury by playing
when you haven't fully recovered
from that particularly nasty
furniture kicking incident
of a week last Tuesday

Get match fit
before the start of the season
flexing your fingers
late into the night
and if you have a virtual boot
your toes too

Finally
make sure that you have
a fully equipped first aid box
and that you know
which kitchen cupboard
it's hidden in
