DENMARK'S World Cup stars are facing an arid time in the desert... after the Danish FA banned their Wags from Qatar.

The Scandinavians traditionally bring their wives and girlfriends to the finals of major tournaments.

But the DBU, Denmark's association, has this time refused to take the players' partners.

DBU spokesman Jakob Hoyer said they had taken their stance to avoid enriching Qatar's economy.

Manchester United playmaker Christian Eriksen and Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are among those likely to go without due to the veto.

Other potentially affected squad members include Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen, Leicester duo Jannik Vestergaard and Daniel Iversen, plus Leeds defender Rasmus Kristiansen.

Brentford trio Mathias Jensen, Mikkel Damsgaard and Christian Norgaard could also be deprived of female company - as could Nice's ex-Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Danish paper Ekstra Bladet headlined their report: "No kisses and sex for the World Cup boys."

Hoyer told the Copenhagen daily: "The DBU and the DBU's board of directors have decided to minimise travel to Qatar in connection with the World Cup.

"We don't want to contribute to making a profit for Qatar.  Therefore we have slowed down our travel activities as much as possible.
