Shamed England stars Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood had an inside man help them hook up with two Icelandic girls.
They paid a hotel worker so they could smuggle in the women despite strict coronavirus rules banning visitors.
Model Nadia Sif Lindal Gunnarsdottir, 20, and her cousin Lara Clausen, 19, later posted footage, including an image of Foden’s bum, from their rendezvous in Reykjavik.
It also emerged that England’s game against Denmark last night would have been in jeopardy had a physio not collared the players before breakfast.
A source said: “They were very keen to meet the women and needed help from an employee, who received a very generous tip.
“There cannot be any doubt they knew what they did was wrong. All the rules had been drummed into them.
“There was less security than usual travelling as no fans were allowed in the stadium and the players took advantage of that.”
England boss Gareth Southgate sent Greenwood, 18, and Foden, 20, home on Monday.
The source said: “The manager has been measured in public but is absolutely furious with them. They can expect to be banished from the next couple of squads.”
A separate source told The Sun the players were stopped by a physio from joining team-mates at the Radisson Blu Saga Hotel.
The source said: “If they had breakfast with the lads, it could have led to the Denmark game being called off.”
Man United striker Greenwood and Man City midfielder Foden both made their senior international debuts in Saturday’s 1-0 Nations League victory over Iceland.
Greenwood yesterday apologised and vowed to learn from his “huge mistake”.
Dad-of-one Foden issued an apology on Monday before returning home.
Both were fined £1,360 by police in Iceland for their Covid breach.
