In a bizarre development, the French World Cup team has been sent a pack of sex toys as the perfect gift before the arrival of their WAGs in South Africa today.
France skipper Patrice Evra had earlier managed to get the French Football Federation (FFF) to fly the WAGs in time to watch the clash against Uruguay in Cape Town last night.
Raymond Domenech's men were originally due to get a visit from their partners only if they reached the quarterfinals.
The squad got gift packs off Sexyprive, which included condoms, massage oil and fluffy pink handcuffs.
"We sent special Sexy France relaxation packs to Raymond and his players to stimulate their senses and motivate them to win the World Cup," The Sun quoted a Sexyprive spokesman, as saying.
French officials would be spending over 200,000 pounds to make sure that the WAGs accompany their partners.
"I prefer the wives and girlfriends to be out there. It is psychological, and better for the players," said Noel Le Graet, FFF Vice-President.
"It is like in ordinary life - you always feel better with a woman by your side," he added.
Evra had previously negotiated 250,000 pounds-a-man bonuses if Les Bleus win the World Cup.
