Sex, drink helped Brazil win '94 World Cup, says Branco

Brazilian World Cup winner Branco said that sex and alcohol were both important in Brazil winning the 1994 Word Cup.

The full-back, a member of the 1994 winning Brazilian team, believes they are beneficial for all players in preparation for the World Cup.

"What harm is there in it? My son Stefano was conceived during the 1994 World Cup when I spent a day off in San Francisco with my wife. Sex is good for you. It relieves tension. We hadn't won the World Cup for 24 years so it didn't do us any harm," Branco was quoted as by The Daily Telegraph.

"Sex at the camp should only be ruled out with a team-mate's wife. What you can't do is stuff your face until four in the morning or stay in a brothel."

"We were very professional when we won the World Cup in '94. We went there to win it. Drinking was allowed and we'd have three or four drinks to relax. What's wrong with that?" he said.

"If it were a problem, then there wouldn't be any football in England or Germany, where they drink beer, or in Italy, France and Argentina where they drink wine. It's part of the culture."

"There was drink in '94, I conceived my son and everyone said we were perfect physically and tactically," Branco said.
