THE pressure of representing their country at the World Cup can take a huge toll on players.
Sexologist Natalia Kobylkina is urging the England manager to let his players go into sex-tra time with their wives and girlfriends – but ban romps the day before a game.
She tells The Sun: “If they win and perform well they should be rewarded by being able to perform equally well when they see their loved ones after the game.
“That will also, hopefully, get them in the right frame of mind for the next fixture.”
But while she firmly believes sex games are good for the squad, too much nookie could hamper their chances of bringing home the World Cup.
She explains: “It is very important for the guys to be ready for action when they get out onto the field.
“You can’t expect that to happen if they have been putting all their energies into making love with their partner in the run-up to matches.”
Natalia, 38, believes to get the best out of his team, Southgate must ban any performances in the bedroom 72 hours before each game and save the reward for when the game is over.
She argues the players need to have heightened levels of testosterone and cortisone in their bodies to maximise their prowess on the pitch.
Natalia adds: “If Gareth Southgate follows my advice, England can go all the way to lift the trophy – and the wives and girlfriends will have fulfilled an important role in winning the World Cup.”
No to ‘sex ban’
Natalia, 38, says it’s not feasible to ask players not to have sex for more than a month throughout the tournament.
She says: “They will start to get depressed and frustrated. Their heads will drop and they won’t be at their best.
“You wouldn’t impose a month-long sex ban for players during a normal season. It just wouldn’t work.
“So it’s not going to work in Qatar either. It’s not as if the WAGS aren’t there!”
Natalia, who is based in London and boasts an international client list of athletes, entrepreneurs and politicians, reckons she knows the best time a player should have sex in order to give their best performance – on the pitch, that is.
“The optimum time for a male footballer, like any elite male athlete, to have sex before a major sporting event is 72 hours,” she says.
“That way the players can be at their peak mentally and physically for the challenge ahead.
“Sex can be a reward for winning or a consolation for losing. So a win-win scenario for the players and, of course, their wives and girlfriends!
‘Stay strong for England’
For the WAGS who have made it to Qatar to cheer on their men, Natalia says: “If you want your man to do well on the pitch you have to say ‘no’ to sex for 72 hours before each game.
“You need to stay strong for England. Once the games are over, that’s when you can let your defences down – and hopefully the boys can rise to the occasion!
“The lads need to reach the maximum levels of their animal potential. They need to be hungry for sex and hungry for the ball – obviously not at the same time!
“That way their all-round game will be so much better.
“If they have sex too close to kick-off they won’t have either the energy or the motivation to do their best.”
