English soccer captain David Beckham has allayed fears that the presence of soccer stars’ wives and girlfriends (WAGs) in their hotel would distract them during the ongoing Football World Cup in Germany.

“We’ve seen the wives, kids and girlfriends for a day and a half. It’s no distraction. Sven likes a relaxed atmosphere and when you’re away for five weeks it’s nice to have the option of seeing your family,” The Sun quoted Becks as saying.

He added that all the players were totally focused.

Former England striker Shearer said: “You are in the tournament to win it and nothing should get in the way.”
