Mexican players banned from having sex at World Cup

Mexico national team manager Miguel Herrera has ‘laid’ down the law: No sex at this summer’s World Cup for his players.

"If a player can not endure a month or 20 days without having intercourse, then you are not prepared to be a professional," Herrera told Mexican newspaper Reforma.

A whole month of no sex? Herrera might be a little too optimistic of his team’s chances, but in order for El Tri to perform at their best, he’s leaving nothing to chance. Drinking alcohol has also been forbidden, logically.

"Let’s play a World Cup, we’re not going to a party," Herrera said.

Herrera isn’t the first World Cup coach to set limits in the bedroom. Last month, Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari’s told his players that normal sex will be allowed, but not acrobatic sex.

For those wondering, yes, Brazil and Mexico play each other in Group A. The testosterone on display on June 17 will be off the charts.

UPDATE: Herrera has prohibited his players from eating beef as well, so add that to the list of banned pleasures.

Spanish brothel promised free prostitutes if Atletico won La Liga?

image

Promises are promises. Then there’s this.

Atletico Madrid capped off one of the most memorable La Liga title races in recent memory after rallying to win their first Spanish Primera Division crown in 18 years. Los Colchoneros, 100/1 underdogs before the start of the 2013-14 season, needed only a draw against defending champion Barcelona at the Camp Nou to make history.

And that’s exactly what Atletico accomplished on Saturday, and that’s where the story gets interesting.

Brazil manager forbids ‘acrobatic’ sex during World Cup

Every World Cup, it becomes the talking point amongst players and media members. No, not starting lineups or formations, weather or field conditions. Sex.

Yes, the idea of players bringing their girlfriends or wives along to the world’s biggest tournament has been ‘hotly’ debated for decades. Could they be a distraction to the players, perhaps even “tire” them out ahead of the games? Or would a little “stress relief” actually be beneficial? You know, clear the mind among other things. These are excellent questions that every national team manager has had to address.

As the host nation, Brazil is facing the most pressure to perform this summer, so sex was naturally one of the topics manager Luiz Felipe Scolari had to answer recently. And he gave a fantastic answer:

“The players can have normal sex during the World Cup. Usually normal sex is done in balanced way, but there are certain forms, certain ways and others who do acrobatics. And that, no,” Scolari replied at a press conference in Lisbon on Monday.

"We will put limits and survey the players.”

So close the Kama Sutra, Thiago Silva. No diving in the bedroom, Neymar. Rules are rules.

Neymar’s girlfriend shakes her stuff on live TV

Neymar’s girlfriend apparently moves just as well as her boyfriend.

Bruna Marquezine, the 18-year-old flame of Neymar, showed off some racy dance moves on the Brazilian celebrity dance show “Quadradinho de Quatro.” An actress since childhood, Marquezine is certainly used to being in the spotlight, but we’re not sure how Neymar will feel about this particular bit.

Some men might get a little uneasy about their girlfriend showing off the curves for all the world to see, especially with some creep grinding up on her.

Mario Balotelli involves girlfriend in bold claim about Real Madrid

image

Mario Balotelli might have some explaining to do the next time he sees his Belgian model girlfriend Fanny Neguesha. And hopefully she’s in the mood for a good joke.

The AC Milan star recently joked to Spanish newspaper Marca that he’ll let Real Madrid players get intimate with his better half if they reach the Champions League final:

“If Real Madrid come back against Borussia Dortmund and make it to the Final of the Champions League, then I will let my girlfriend sleep with all the players.”

While a comeback seems unlikely - Dortmund thrashed the Spanish giants 4-1 in their Champions League semifinal first leg match last week, leaving the Germans closer to a date at Wembley next month - it’s an outrageous comment even for Super Mario.

UPDATE: Milan denied that Balotelli said this, in a statement saying, “Milan would like to make it clear that the player never made any comments regarding the match.”
