    5 Jailed For Stealing England Football Players Yfronts

    Five cleaners who worked at England's luxury World Cup hotel in South Africa have been jailed for three years for stealing underwear from the players.


    It is not known which players had items stolen


    The defendants were also convicted of taking a USA shirt that an England player received after the teams' group match and a medal awarded by FIFA.
    Police spokeswoman Junior Metsi said very little cash was stolen - about 500 - and the thieves seemed more interested in souvenirs.
    The thefts at the hotel in the town of Rustenburg were not reported to police until Saturday.
    Ms Metsi said officers solved the case within a day after they searched the homes of hotel staff.
    The following day, a special World Cup court convicted five hotel workers over the thefts.
    They were sentenced to three years in prison and fined 6,000 rand (about 525).


    England's World Cup HQ was a state-of-the-art sports complex and hotel built by the Bafokeng tribe of northern South Africa and completed shortly before the tournament began.
    The Bafokeng also own the Rustenburg stadium where some of the games in the competition were played.
    Ms Metsi would not name the players whose items were taken.
    "Everything that was stolen was recovered and they (the thieves) are now behind bars," she said.
    England made it to the round of 16, but got knocked out on Sunday after losing to Germany 4-1.
    A Frank Lampard goal was disallowed by the referee even though TV replays showed it had gone over the line.

    3 years seems a bit harsh for some underpants.

    I'm not one for bleeding heart lefty judgementalism but it seems highly unfair that the likes of Lampard who wouldn't miss a shirt here and there walk home wit lorde knows how much for doing fuck all, when a few hotel workeres who probably live in tin shacks get 3 years in monkey house for trying to get a bit of extra together to feed the kids...

    The poms are livid about 'that goal' being dissallowed.

    Seems a little harsh taking it out on poor hotel staff though - having the full force of the law thrown at them for a few pairs of jocks...
