Argentina players get thumbs-up for sex during World Cup

Table of Contents
Most footballers are banned from having sex before a match, but lucky Argentina players have been given green light to have sex with their regular partners during the World Cup.

Albiceleste boss Diego Maradona is happy for his players to get some action off the pitch before their game, as long as they don't risk injury.

Team doctor Donato Vallani said on Radio Del Plata: "The players can have sex with their wives and girlfriends during the World Cup. Players are not Martians."

"But it should not be at 2 a.m. with champagne and Havana cigars."

He added: "Sex is a normal part of social life and is not a problem. The disadvantages are when it is with someone who is not a stable partner or when the player should be resting.

"It is important the action should not reverberate in the legs of the players."

Vallani didn't give any other specific instructions except to say that players keep a regular sleep schedule.

He also said drinking was prohibited but the players could eat Argentina's specialty - barbecued beef - with a glass of wine.
