Warm-up

The Sunday Independent - - Sport - TVNo­tas

YOU MAY have heard that the foot­ball World Cup is start­ing in Moscow on Thurs­day. Ahead of their de­par­ture for the tour­na­ment, mem­bers of Mex­ico’s na­tional squad held a farewell party with around 30 pros­ti­tutes, which we think you’ll agree is a heck of a way to get warmed up. Ac­cord­ing to the gos­sip magazine, nine mem­bers of Mex­ico’s World Cup squad par­tied with dozens of es­corts at a pri­vate com­pound in Mex­ico City last Satur­day fol­low­ing the team’s 1-0 win over Scot­land at the Aztec Sta­dium. The magazine pub­lished grainy images of play­ers ar­riv­ing at the party un­der the head­line: “The true farewell of the Tri!”. How­ever, Mex­i­can of­fi­cials said the play­ers in­volved will not be sanc­tioned be­cause they at­tended the party in their free time. Guillermo Cantu, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Mex­i­can Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion, said the play­ers would not be pun­ished be­cause “they have not missed train­ing”. “A free day is a free day and those are the risks that one runs with free­dom,” Cantu was quoted as say­ing.
