Helguera made this revelation during an Instagram Live interview with ‘Mister Chip': “The Brazilians were different. One of the good things Del Bosque did was he knew how to manage the squad very well.

Some people liked to go out more than others, but to the point of changing our training sessions to the afternoon, I can assure you it wasn’t like that. We trained at 11 every day.

Beckham was a fantastic professional. Figo and Zidane too. Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo liked to go out but they didn't do it every day.

If we played on Saturday and won they’d maybe go out but partying on a Friday or Saturday when we had a match on Sunday, things were not like that.

But I remember a birthday party at Ronaldo's house, where buses full of girls began to arrive. I was with my wife and we decided to leave, as did Figo.
