Ladies welcome: Germans will allow visits for wives, girlfriends

Unlike other teams at Euro 2016, world champions Germany plan on letting their players enjoy a bit of downtime away from football with their favourite ladies.

The Germans were asked at Friday's press conference about possible visits for players'* wives or girlfriends during Euro 2016 given that other teams at Euro 2016 are not allowing the contact.

"There is not any concrete info about how that will work out," German star Andre Schuerrle said initially.

He added that the German team had always found a "good solution" in previous tournaments.

"But the most important thing should be the football, and that will be the same here. Let's see."

German assistant coach Thomas Schneider jumped in and offered: "We will definitely build in some visiting times for the ladies. We are a little bit different than other nations."
