If we had to guess what the Croatian squad's favourite film might be, we definitely wouldn't say The Full Monty.

After pictures showing them bathing nude at their training complex's swimming pool were published online, Croatia players are now refusing to talk to reporters at the World Cup.

Coach Niko Kovac was equally unimpressed as he slammed paparazzi photographers during a recent news conference: "How would you feel if someone took naked pictures of you?

"They are determined that they will not speak to the media. I don't know if this will last until tomorrow, or until after we are at the World Cup. I can't force them to change their minds after what you have done to them and their families."
