An Icelandic teenager reveals today how she spent a night of passion with England star Phil Foden at the team hotel before Gareth Southgate's security guards barged into her room at 6am searching for the young player.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Lara Clausen says she slept with the Manchester City midfielder only hours after he made his debut for the Three Lions against Iceland, without knowing about his girlfriend and young son.
The revelation comes amid growing concerns about young people putting others at risk by breaking Covid rules and, in particular, the warning issued this week by the health minister, Lord Bethell, urging them not to spread virus by having sex.
MailOnline was told how Foden, 20, further increased the risk of spreading the virus ahead of England's trip to Denmark by meeting Lara, 19, and her cousin. The women booked two rooms at the hotel and joined Foden and teammate Mason Greenwood in the early hours of Sunday morning, breaking Iceland's strict Covid quarantine rules.
The episode, which ended when the players went to their own rooms at 3am, led England boss Southgate to send them home in disgrace, accusing them of being 'naïve'. Both stars were fined £1,360 by Icelandic police and later issued grovelling apologies for their 'unacceptable' behaviour.
Lara recalled how she was woken three hours after Foden sneaked out of her bed by England's security team, who searched her room, demanding: 'Where are the boys? Where are the boys?'

Lara looked on as the uniformed officer stormed into her room while two other men watched him. 'They turned on the lights and he looked in the bathroom and in the cupboards, looking for the players,' she said.
‘We felt they didn’t treat us with any respect. They thought we were just foreign girls that didn't matter and weren't worth anything,' the student added.
Her cousin, model Nadia Sif Lindal Gunnarsdottir, 20, had arranged the meeting with Manchester United striker Greenwood after they met on an exclusive dating app.
Nadia booked a room on the seventh floor of the £55-a-night Radisson Blu Saga Hotel in Reykjavik, while the players were staying on the third floor.
Lara, a keen make-up artist who lives with her parents, who run a law firm in the town of Keflavik in southwest Iceland, said she dropped Nadia off at the hotel at midnight on Sunday.
But while she was driving home Nadia called her, saying that 'a player called Phil' had arrived, asking if she had a friend. 'I asked on the phone who this guy was and he got offended that I didn't know him,' Lara said.
'I got his name and looked at his picture on Instagram to see what he looked like. Then I agreed to come back to the hotel.'
Before doing so, however, she stopped to buy three bags of Maynards Sour Patch Kids sweets for Nadia and the two footballers. Her cousin transferred money into her account to pay for the sweets.

'I got to the hotel and it was very quiet,' Lara said. 'It was a nice hotel, I was impressed by it. I booked a room and paid for it. It cost 10,000 Króna (£55).
'Phil had told me he would pay me back, but he didn't. I got room 700 on the seventh floor, and Nadia was 702. The boys were on the third floor.
