The field of strategic prohibition in football now has a new frontier.

That frontier is Twitter.

Whenever a major international tournament pops up, some manager or another always gets the bright idea to limit his players' activities.

Sometimes they prohibit their players from intimate relations with their wives and girlfriends (though, apparently, Fabio Capello didn't consider the possibility of there being any gay players in that situation).

This time, it's Twitter.

Yes, Twitter. Denmark's players won't be able to use Twitter during Euro 2012.

Clearly, that makes them the new favorites.
