DENMARK have landed in hot water after holding a pool party with a bevy of scantily-clad women before a crucial World Cup game.
The Danish FA has opened an investigation after players allegedly romped with female staff at an Elsinore hotel last week.
The team had been due to fly to Moldova's capital Chisinau for last Saturday's qualifier.
The Hotel Marienlyst has disciplined two waitresses following the reported antics.
Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen, Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Leicester duo Kasper Schmeichel and Jannik Vestergaard, plus Brentford pair Christian Norgaard and Mathias Jensen, were all in the Danish squad.
Hotel manager Michael Lauritsen vented his anger in a leaked internal email to staff – branding events "disappointing and totally unacceptable”.
He wrote: "Unfortunately, there are some employees who have been too friendly to the national team.
"I had not thought this could take place in my wildest imagination.
"I have to remind you that we always act professionally, and do not socialise with the players privately in guest areas or in the rooms."
Lauritsen told Danish magazine Se og Hor: "I can confirm that I have had to reprimand two staff members who did not comply with our personnel policy.
"I always have ongoing contact with the Danish FA, and of course we have discussed this.
"I have been told that the women were in one pool while the players were in another, and the two groups gathered in one.
"This is not going to work."
Denmark's players went on to prove they had plenty of energy left by beating Moldova 4-0.
And Kasper Hjulmand's side ensured their place at next year's Qatar finals with a 1-0 win over Austria on Tuesday.
