AN Icelandic beauty queen has told how she got “heated” with shamed football star Mason Greenwood — after he scoffed a bag of jelly babies.
Nadia Gunnarsdottir, 20, said the pair “connected” on a dating app and the Manchester United striker, 18, met with her the day after making his England debut in Reykjavik.
Greenwood was sent home in disgrace last week with team-mate Phil Foden — after the pair evaded England’s hotel security to meet Nadia and her cousin Lara Clausen.
Nadia told how she and “shy” Mason ended up in one room at the Radisson Blu Saga hotel — while Manchester City’s Foden, 20, and Lara, 19 romped next door.
Nadia, a 5ft 9in Miss Universe Iceland finalist last year, revealed: “Mason kissed me and things got pretty heated.
“He was certainly not as shy physically as he was socially.
“Yes, things happened. Mason and I took our clothes off but I don’t want to go into detail.
“He was athletic and fit. I liked the fact he was taller than me.”
The next morning Nadia and Lara were woken by England security staff hammering on their hotel door and looking for the players.
Detailing Greenwood and Foden’s night of shame for the first time, Nadia told how the rising stars asked Lara to bring sweets to the hotel including fruit-flavoured jellies.
Mason kissed me and things got pretty heated.
And she told how hotel staff told them two other girls had been thrown out for trying to meet players the night before their liaison.
Nadia did not know who Greenwood was when he contacted her on the app on Saturday September 5 — the day he made his England debut as a 78th minute sub in the 1-0 Nations League win over Iceland.
She googled him and — after they “liked” each other Greenwood sent her a message at 9.20pm, following the 5pm kick-off.
The pair chatted online the next day and Greenwood told Nadia it was his last night in Iceland.
He explained he could not leave the team hotel — where England booked out the entire third floor — due to security.
But he asked Nadia to travel to the Radisson, book herself in — and said he could sneak out to meet her.
Nadia made the reservation online and make-up artist Lara dropped her off around midnight.
Nadia told Greenwood she had booked into Room 702 and was surprised when he turned up with his team-mate in tow.
Winger Foden has a one-year-old child with Rebecca Cooke, but it is unclear if they are a couple.
Nadia said: “I had googled Mason and checked his Instagram so knew who he was and that he played for United and had played against Iceland for England.
“I said I would come and booked a room and then he showed up with Phil, and I didn’t know who he was.
“Mason said, ‘Do you have a friend?’ I said, ‘Yeah the one who dropped me off.’”
She phoned Lara and invited her to the hotel. Then the players asked if Lara could bring some sweets.
She returned with Sour Patch Kids sweets and Icelandic Vegan Tritlar fruit-flavoured jellies.
Nadia explained: “Lara was in a shopping centre so got them the candy they asked for.
“We all chilled together. Mason ate virtually the whole packet of Tritlar and Phil had some too.
“We all got along and were in my room just chatting, laughing and joking. Phil was open and outgoing but Mason was quite shy.
“They were telling us they thought Iceland was boring, and asking if there was much to do.
“At one point Phil recorded us on his phone like a TV interviewer, and said, ‘So what’s it like living in Iceland?’”
Nadia told how the players had dodged security on their floor.
She said: “They told me there was a female guard on their floor who was eyeballing them as they left. But they didn’t seem worried.
“She didn’t follow them but may have spoken to hotel staff.
“We did not know they were in quarantine and they did not mention coronavirus or ask us if we had been tested.
“Also, not once did Phil mention a baby or girl. But he was the same age as us, so we didn’t think anything of it.”
Lara told today how she slept with Foden after he asked to go to Room 700, which she had booked. She said he then suddenly kissed her and added: “He left my bedroom very happy.”
We did not know they were in quarantine and they did not mention coronavirus or ask us if we had been tested.
Nadia said: “We could hear them laughing and having fun next door.
“Mason tried to call Phil and he didn’t pick up so Mason went into their room.
“He took some videos of them, including of Phil kissing Lara on the cheek and holding hands.
“Mason also had a video of Lara in her underwear.”
A scandal erupted after Lara posted a Snapchat picture of Foden, with his backside exposed and an Instagram video was leaked.
Nadia said: “They didn’t tell us not to take pictures or video but I didn’t, and I didn’t leak anything.”
At 3am, the players left to return to their floor — with Foden kissing both girls goodbye and asking Lara to stay in touch.
But Nadia explained: “Mason just said ‘bye’ and didn’t say much else or give me a kiss goodbye. I thought, ‘Damn that’s a bit rude’.”
'SECURITY STORMED THE ROOM'
The cousins then left the hotel to get food. When they returned a staff member in the lobby told them there had been complaints.
Nadia said: “I don’t know why there had been complaints, we weren’t loud or anything.
"She then asked if we had been there on the Saturday night and told us two girls had been ejected from the hotel. She thought we were the girls, but we weren’t.
“It sounded like other girls had tried to meet England players.”
Nadia and Lara went back to a room and were woken at 6am.
The female guard the players had dodged, the team’s Head of Security and a Covid officer were at the door.
Nadia said: “The man and woman stormed into the room and asked where the boys were. They were even looking in the closets.”
Later news emerged that furious England boss Gareth Southgate had sent the players home, branding them “naive”.
The pair — who missed England’s 0-0 draw in Denmark on Tuesday — have since apologised.
They have been rapped by their clubs and fined £1,360 for breaching strict Covid regulations in Iceland.
Nadia said: “Yes, of course they were irresponsible. But I guess it was also irresponsible of us to go and meet people from another country.
"I feel sorry for them — I feel bad for everything that has happened. But their careers are just starting and are not ruined.”
Speaking on BT Sport, pundit and Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, 41, said: “What 18-year-old isn’t going to make a mistake, it’s just they are in the spotlight.
"But importantly now, acknowledge the mistake you have made, hold your hands up yes, and now it’s about moving on and moving forward.”
