Sex bans are occasionally imposed by some teams heading to major tournaments in a bid to prevent unforeseen injuries and heighten focus and the former Chelsea manager believes that if players stick to conventional intercourse, the Smaba Boys will be okay.

"Normal sexual intercourses is made in a balanced way, but there are certain forms, certain ways and others who do acrobatics. And that, no," said the former Chelsea boss who will lead Brazil on home soil.

At the 2002 World Cup, Scolari was stricter when it came to nocturnal activities, banning his players from engaging in sexual pursuits during the entirety of the tournament which the Selecao ended up winning.

Ronaldo famously spoke of his “ache down below” during the victorious campaign 12 years ago.
