It's actually very simple. Football players do not want to use the toilet during the match, because the whole body is subjected to a lot of physical activity. C Accordingly, the player starts to sweat. They lose a lot of body water. Approximately 15-20% of the body's water. He becomes dehydrated. Therefore, football players almost never want to use the toilet during a match.
Before the match, you need to go to the toilet. And if you want to play in the match, you need to ask the coach for 5 minutes and come back like this did Sergio Ramos, or even come out as a substitute. After that you can't play again
I'll tell you about a real story. Previously, the great French goalkeeper, Fabien Barthez, played. While playing in the French championship (then he played for Marseille), Fabien just walked up to the post and relieved himself outside the goal while his team attacked the other's goal.
Doctors monitor their food, and it adjusts so that during the match the player would not want to use the toilet. Of course, there were cases when they relieved themselves on the field, as already described, but such cases are extremely rare.
You hardly believe it, but they ... Go to the toilet)
A recent case, Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, suddenly during the Spanish championship match, after he approached the referee, retired to the under-ribbed room from where he successfully returned and continued the match.
After the game, the head coach was asked where Ramos had gone to which he replied that Ramos had "done a little bit", so there is nothing beyond the ordinary
so they sometimes eat in the field, but that's a completely different story)
1 - Approaches the judge
2 - Requested for * t)))
3 - He walks (or runs), it all depends on the degree of desire))) and does his own case
4 - Returns to the field
As an example ... watch the match between Real Madrid and Eibar in La Liga
I remember seven years ago I was at a match in Volgograd, in which the local Rotor and Luch-Energiya from Vladivostok played. The stadium was then at that time after the begun, but not completed reconstruction, as a result of which one sector was demolished on one of the stands, and a blue fence was put in its place, so that it somehow covered the ruins and vegetation that were in the place of the already destroyed sector. So, as I understand it, during the first half, one of the players of the Far Eastern team, so to speak, was pressed, and during the break he solved his problem behind the same fence, and his teammate went with him, I suppose, in order to the first was not too creepy in front of several thousand viewers.

In fact, during a match, you don't even think about it. If the competition is of a serious level, and not in the yard with runaway friends, then after five minutes of intense play, sweat is pouring in and you don't feel like writing at all. I also try not to eat on the day of the match, because I personally feel comfortable playing on an empty stomach.
Here, so it is quite difficult to suddenly want to write during a football match. If you are not sitting on the podium with a glass of beer, of course
I used to play football, went to the section, played at children's tournaments for 90 minutes, I never wanted to go to the toilet. NEVER. I was also interested in this question from my childhood. Usually, everything is done before the match, hardly anyone tolerates it, it would be very confusing, and the player did not give all his best.
In addition, in professional football, the players have a strict diet, training order, I think all this is signed taking into account the human physiology.
As for "small", "big", as a rule, it does not happen, again because of the meal schedule, training and other things, the body adjusts and after a while you go to the toilet already at the same time (for many military men), as for a sharp stomach upset: for no reason, for no reason, this is unlikely (again, due to diet and under close attention of doctors), and if a football player feels some kind of malaise, he does not come out in the starting lineup.
If, nevertheless, something unforeseen happened and there is no strength to endure, then they ask for a replacement with a gesture.
No problem to wait a few minutes. An athlete cannot hold back if he has a gastrointestinal disorder, and this is a reason to ask for a replacement
That's why a football match is divided into several halves so that players, fans, etc. were able to relieve themselves, as well as get food / rest, etc.
As a former player in the youth league, I can say that during a match, a football player is psychologically disconnected from everything that does not concern the game. And, of course, it would never occur to anyone to turn off the water before the game or to gorge themselves - this will not contribute to a good game. The examples given are just rare exceptions. As you can see, everyone does it differently
In the 2012/13 season, Sounthepton footballer Punchon ran off the field to the toilet during the match, by and large. English fans did not ignore this
To which he responded with a goal celebration
There was a case with the legend of English football - Gary Lineker - an offensive case. He endured and still got it during the World Cup match. He even wrote about it in his book, something like "Thank God that it was raining heavily"
As far as I know, they have a certain schedule before the matches, meal times and the actual diet, which is selected individually for each player. And so, I think that if there is a specific need to go to the toilet in large quantities, when it is already impossible to endure, then the football player asks for a replacement.
The most famous case happened with Harry Lineker at the 1990 World Cup. Harry was feeling unwell and as a result of a careless action there was an unpleasant moment. It is rather difficult to understand from the video what happened. You better watch it yourself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t_8pfbCH-4
The famous goalkeeper of the German national team Jens Lehmann somehow urinated during a match right near his goal. There is a vidos on the Internet, if anyone is interested)
I think they go before the match :) And they also train on purpose. Unless I'm mistaken, of course. But somehow they are playing and waiting for the end. :))
I have always been interested in this question too. The same for the judges. I have never seen players or referees leave the field for a while. True, there was a case when the Swiss referee Massimo Buzzaka urinated right during the game:
"On September 12, 2009, he was invited to referee the Qatar championship match between the teams of Al-Garafa and Al-Khor. During the match, Buzacca unexpectedly urinated right in the home team's penalty area. After the match, he explained that he was feeling unwell and had to urgently relieve himself "
And coaches don't seem to go anywhere. I think everyone will endure until the end of the half, if this happens. Although it should be harder to play. But I have not heard any footballers complaining about this, even in their hearts.
