What does "roll the dice" mean here?
82' Van Gaal rolls the dice for the last time today as Mata comes off in United's final alteration to proceedings. Wilson, lacking in match time this season, enters the pitch as his successor.

@kristal,
It means "takes a chance" or "makes an attempt".

Thanks, Enginner. Can you also tell me what lack in means? I'm a bit confused.

@kristal,
It means "not having". "Lacking in playing time" means he hasn't played a lot this season. "Lacking in resourced" means not having a lot of resources.
