The Blues and the scandal of the hostesses

Sadly eliminated from the group stage, the Blues present at the 2022 World Cup also stood out for their wild evenings at their Sheraton hotel.

Holders of the title since their historic coronation at the Stade de France and winner of the Euro two years earlier, the French team arrives in South Korea in the hope of becoming the first team since Brazil in 1962 to manage to keep his world crown.

An establishment which was that of all the temptations for the players of the France team.

The girls have a lot of memories with them

Recluse in their hotel, if not for short walks, the Blues sought an escape. “Three weeks without getting out of there, you’re going crazy”, confided one of the internationals. Some of Roger Lemerre’s men got lost at Sirocco, the hotel’s disco bar. “They came every night. The girls have a lot of memories with them”, confided one of the employees in reference to the hostesses who worked in the establishment until closing, at 2 am. And some even seemed to stay beyond…
