Germany players have been banned from sex during the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Germany coach, Joachim Low, has banned his players from having sex, or using social media networks during this summer’s World Cup.
Low does not want the players’ partners ruining his preparations in Russia, with players forced to ask for special permission to see their other halves and even their children.
Social media will also be prohibited for the likes of Mesut Ozil, Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller and Marco Reus., who have very active social media platforms.
According to Gazetta dello Sport, Low will however allow the players to drink, to help boost team spirits, with the boss insisting: “The team is more important than the ego.”
Germany have started their preparations for the World Cup by training in South Tyrol, in north-east Italy this week.
In other reports, Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has cut down his provisional squad for this summer’s World Cup from 30 to 25 players.
Those removed from the previous 30-man squad are: Moses Simon, Dele Ajiboye, Uche Agbo, Stephen Eze and Junior Lokosa.
The players will not travel with the rest of the team to London, where Nigeria take on the Three Lions of England on Saturday.
After that game, Rohr will drop two more players and then name his final 23-man squad.
