Thanks for posting your query.

He can play foot ball on Friday, provided:

>No fever
>Eating normal
>Not feeling weakness, drained out
>Infection is under control means, the symptoms like cough etc.are improving and almost under control.
>His energy level is good.

He can not play if:

>There are signs of infection persisting: like mild fever, coughing quite often, through which he can transmit infection to others.
>Having some weakness, his intake is not up to the XXXXXXX
>Sinus infection and bronchitis was not severe enough which has required some investigations like Chest X ray-which indicates some severity of infection
>Specific advice given by your doctor to avoid any physical exertion.

As you know, foot ball playing needs good level of energy. It puts lots of strain on body, so please keep in mind the points written above.

I hope this helps you in taking an informed decision.

Wishing him good health.
