Mexican World Cup Players Can't Have Sex Or Eat Meat

Head coach Miguel Herrera doesn't want his players scoring off the field.

Head coach Miguel "El Piojo" Herrera has banned his players from eating red meat and discouraged them from having sex in the days leading up to the tournament in Brazil.

The ban on beef is actually precautionary.

The players were eventually cleared by the Mexican Football Federation and the World Anti-Doping Agency, but Herrera isn't taking any chances this time around.

All players, including the ones who are married and whose spouses will be at the tournament, have also been discouraged from engaging in any sexual activity.

"Nope, nobody," Herrera told the Mexican newspaper Reforma. "If a player can't go one month or 20 days without having sexual relations, he isn't ready to be a professional."

So score one for Mexico, guys. But ONLY do it on the field.
