A few days ago, news broke that several Spanish players’ rooms were broken into and robbed at the Confederations Cup.
Maybe they forgot to mention a few minor details.
According to overwhelming reports from Brazil, on the night in question several women were allegedly seen entering the players’ rooms where they all played a round of strip poker before the robbery took place.
Hotel employees reportedly told Brazilian media giant Globo that players ordered a band to come play in the room to celebrate Spain’s opening match victory over Uruguay. The report adds that the band played until 1 a.m. and that the five women joined five players and members of the technical staff for a late-night game of adult entertainment. It wasn’t until later in the morning that several players, including Shakira’s boyfriend Gerard Pique, discovered cash and valuables stolen from their rooms.
Though the Spanish federation acknowledged that six of its players were robbed at the team hotel, the players and Spanish football association have called these reports a “total lie.”
Either way, someone has some serious explaining to do.
