THE pressure of representing their country at the World Cup can take a huge toll on players.
But a sex and relationship expert reckons she knows exactly how Gareth Southgate can revitalise his team after matches.
Sexologist Natalia Kobylkina is urging the England manager to let his players go into sex-tra time with their wives and girlfriends – but ban romps the day before a game.
She tells The Sun: "If they win and perform well they should be rewarded by being able to perform equally well when they see their loved ones after the game.
"That will also, hopefully, get them in the right frame of mind for the next fixture."
But while she firmly believes sex games are good for the squad, too much nookie could hamper their chances of bringing home the World Cup.

She explains: "It is very important for the guys to be ready for action when they get out onto the field.
"You can't expect that to happen if they have been putting all their energies into making love with their partner in the run-up to matches."
Natalia, 38, believes to get the best out of his team, Southgate must ban any performances in the bedroom 72 hours before each game and save the reward for when the game is over.
She argues the players need to have heightened levels of testosterone and cortisone in their bodies to maximise their prowess on the pitch.
