Hi Jassy,

When you are working so hard it is important to have a good diet in general.

Before you play you should fuel up with things like plenty of water, and a good carbohydrate food.

Things like Gatorade are OK during training but not in large quantities.  Water is good in most cases.

The most important is to follow a good balanced diet. The night before training eat plenty of high carbohydrate food such as pastas.  Some of the milk based energy food are also good before training.
