Russians To Score With Each Score

by Jeff Briggs

According to The Sun Russian soccer players are going to be given two girls for each goal they score today:

Wealthy socialite Pyotr Listerman was filmed making the offer to star player Andrei Arshavin, 27.

Listerman, known for setting up rich Russians with wives, said: “For each goal I’ll present two beautiful chicks. Watch the guys react.”

Andrei, set to star in tonight’s semi-final against Spain, said: “There are a number of bachelors in our team. This is a great incentive.”

Apparently just making it to the finals of Euro 2008 wasn't incentive enough. I don't understand if these girls are being offered as future wives, or just high-class hookers. Either way, I'd think these athletes, who are representing their country, would be able pull in girls all by themselves.
