England’s glamorous wives and girlfriends are facing a massive £10,000 bill to watch their other halves play in the World Cup this summer.
The likes of Rebekah Vardy and Ruby Mae, the partners of Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli, will have to splash out if they are to cheer on the Three Lions after the FA refused to pay for them.
And even if any were to travel to the World Cup, the FA are expected to put strict bans on their stars on match days, which would mean they would not be able to see their other halves.
It was previously reported that the WAGs were ready to ditch any plans to travel, or only attend selected matches, to Russia following security fears after the attempted murder of former spy Sergei Skripal.
He was poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury a few months ago – leading to increased tensions between the two countries.
Despite the worries, Alli’s model girlfriend Mae, Vardy and Kate Goodland – the fiancée of striker Harry Kane – are all among those WAGs ready to make he trip to Russia.
But they are unhappy at being forced to foot the bill.
“The women aren’t happy," a source told the Sun.
“They’ll also have to stay in a separate hotel so players can focus on the tournament.”
It has been claimed that those who do follow their husbands and boyfriends won’t stay near the players, who will be based in the quiet town of Repino.
Instead they will stick to the safety of central St Petersburg, more than 30 miles away from the player’s HQ.
Back in 2010, then-England boss Fabio Capello banned WAGs from the World Cup in South Africa, limiting visits to once a week, to avoid any distractions.
However, current manager Gareth Southgate will allow families to spend time with players at the team hotel the day after games to help them relax.
England chief Southgate previously said: “I don’t think there has ever been a tournament where the whole family has been in with us the whole time.
"But will I encourage families to come and the lads to see them the day after a game, absolutely I will.
“For some, that will be really important. Sadly for my family, not so much. I’m there and I’m focused and I don’t want to be distracted.”
England face Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stages of the World Cup – with Southgate set to name his provisional squad on May 14.
