Italy arrived in Brazil on Friday and when they did, defender Andrea Ranocchia discovered something with which fans of the Winter Olympics might already be familiar. Ranocchia, who is not a part of Italy's 23-man squad for the World Cup but traveled with the team in case of injury, tweeted a picture of two toilets side by side, presumably found in the team's Rio de Janeiro hotel.
His caption: "But why??? To never feel alone?"
The multi-toilet phenomenon was well documented on social media at the Winter Olympics in Sochi a few months ago and apparently Brazil felt it looked like a good idea, so they've gone and done it too. I'm not sure if this improves or reduces the chances of Mario Balotelli and friends setting fire to a bathroom with fireworks. Probably improves.
