We know female footballers don't get the money, organizational support or fame that their male counterparts do, but now you can add World Cup hotel rooms that aren't infested with swarms of insects to the list, as well.
England midfielder Jill Scott has been keeping a video diary for FA TV during the tournament and in her latest installment, she shares the less than four-star living conditions in their German hotel. After returning from their 2-0 win over Japan, they apparently discovered a disturbingly large swarm of bugs that had overtaken teammate Fara Williams' room. The footballers naturally wanted to combat this infestation, but when they went to the front desk for help in their extermination efforts, they were given a canister of Febreze. The air freshener.
Undeterred by this, the ladies tried to kill the bugs with it anyway. But, as expected, that didn't work and Fara Williams still had a room full of flies that at least now smelled like lavender vanilla.
