Iceland players have been told they are free to have sex ahead of their second World Cup group game against Super Eagles. they were given the all clear to have sex with their wives as they prepare to square up against the Super Eagles in their second group game at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Iceland were very impressive in their opening game as they held South American powerhouse, Argentina to a 1-1 draw. And as they prepare to take on Nigeria who lost their opening game 0-2 against Croatia, coach Heimir Hallgrimsson, has informed his players that they are free to have sex as long as it’s with their wives.
While answering questions from an Icelandic journalist who asked to know if the team members have been banned from having sex, captain Aron Gunnarsson jocularly replied “For the time being, yes.”
However, the coach interjected and insisted that “at least as long as the wives have not arrived. No, sex is not banned, it’s bullshit.”
Iceland players will be reunited with their families on Thursday in Volgograd where they face the Super Eagles on Friday, June 22, 2018.
Both teams are still hopeful of making it out of group D despite contrasting fortunes in their first match. Having lost their opening game, Nigeria need a win to keep them in the running while a draw for Iceland will leave them with two points and a chance to progress to the knock out round.
