What Happens if a Player Wants to Use Toilet in Between a Match?

Do you know or have you ever seen or heard of a soccer player who left/leaves the pitch to answer the call of nature. Being pressed is normal and very natural because everyone goes for the long and short calls.

So, what happens in this situation is that the player resists the urge, as would anyone but when the situation becomes unbearable, the player goes to the nearest toilet. At the professional league level, there should be one very close by under the grandstand. The player leaves, but just like school you'll need permission so a word to a teammate and to an official will be necessary.

A Referee would treat leaving to answer an urgent call of nature as he would treat a need to remedy an equipment or uniform problem, allowing the player to leave the match. The player would report his return to the Referee or another official, the player’s uniform and equipment would be checked (NOT what you might be thinking!), and the Referee would beckon the player to reenter as soon as possible, even during play, as long as the reentry causes no unfair disadvantage to the opponents.

Relieving oneself on the field would be highly unsporting, causing a nuisance or unpleasantness for others, perhaps making that location on the field or ground unplayable, if only temporarily. Recreational players occasionally find themselves unable to find a sanitary convenience near the field, and it may happen that a player might need to step off the field behind the goal to “kneel in prayer” (sometimes said to be “dribbling behind the goal post).

If noticed by a match official it may attract a card depending on the location that a player has used for his/her call. If you didn't know, there are famous players like Neymar, who have found themselves in between the rules of the game and the call of nature. Well eventually or rather obviously, the later wins most of the time then consequences follows.

Now you're in the know. Sub for more.
