The footballers' wives have ignored Fabio Capello's ban, and have been jetting out to South Africa in force ahead of this afternoon’s match
England WAGs are ignoring boss Fabio Capello’s partner ban, and have been jetting out to South Africa in force ahead of this afternoon’s World Cup match.
After last week’s poor performance, the players’ wives and girlfriends have been heading out to the capital en masse, in a bid to boost the team’s morale.
First to break the ban was Joe Cole’s wife Carly, with Emily Heskey’s fiancée Chantelle Tagoe, Michael Carrick’s wife Lisa, and Matthew Upson’s girlfriend Ellie Darby all following suit.
So will the WAGs give the team the boost it needs?
The flashy wives and girlfriends came under fire during the last World Cup for attracting attention with their bad behaviour as they partied in the German town of Baden Baden.
And this led to this year’s ban from the team’s strict new boss.
But some think a wave from the other halves might just give the players the boost they need to score today, and move on to the next of the crucial games.
