Legendary Nigeria defender, Taribo West, has revealed that some of his Super Eagles teammates sneaked women into their hotel rooms a night before their round of 16 clash against Denmark at 1998 World Cup in France, Completesports.com reports.

The Eagles were overwhelming favourites against Denmark but put up a lacklustre performance, and were humiliated 4-1 by the 1992 European champions at Stade de France, Saint-Denis.

Prior to the game against Denmark, the Eagles has topped their group, finishing with six points, following wins against Spain (3-2) and Bulgaria (1-0).

In their final group game against Paraguay which was an inconsequential tie, the Eagles lost 3-1.

And recalling what transpired the night before the game, West claimed the players were fatigued on match day, hence their disappointing performance.

“I read reports about Eagles visiting nightclubs and driving limousines during the World Cup in France, honestly, I don’t know about that,” West told The PUNCH.

“But what I know is that some players sneaked women into camp, I saw that. The women were Africans who came to watch the tournament and fell in love with our team, because of the way we played in the group stage. So, it was easy for these players to woo them to their rooms.

“That is why on match day, you could see a lot of the players didn’t have the strength to curtail the Danish players.

“They were tired after overworking themselves the night before with the women. I was yelling at them on the pitch, I was very angry with them.
“They did all these because they thought we were going to beat Denmark.”

Denmark went on to face Brazil in a  tough quarter-final encounter and lost 3-2.
