Mexico manager Miguel Herrera wants his players to avoid sex during the World Cup, joking it will be okay to look at but not touch bikini-clad women.

After initially saying he would ban sex altogether, Herrera later back-tracked -- but said he still hoped his players would avoid it. "I am thinking about football and I hope that the boys are thinking about football because nobody has died from practicing abstinence for 40 days," he said.

But he acknowledged there might be distractions at the team's base camp in the coastal city of Santos. "We will be in front of the beach, it's impossible not to cross a bikini in Brazil, but looking doesn't hurt," he quipped.
