astroturf in the tunnel

The covered lane that joins the dressing rooms with the pitch usually consists of nothing more than a pair of white-painted breezeblock walls and a concrete floor that is generally covered with Astroturf as if the players, like young cattle, need to be lured out of their cosy bedding by the prospect of fresh grass.
