London:

England will be based at a luxury German resort in Buhl on the edge of the Black Forest during next year's World Cup. Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson's team will have exclusive use of the 90-room Schlosshotel Buhlerhohe in its attempt to win its first World Cup in 40 years. The hotel is set in seven hectares overlooking the Rhine Valley, and is near the spa town of Baden-Baden. "I'm delighted with the hotel,'' Eriksson said on Friday. "I know that there has been a huge amount of work going on throughout the year to find the right place for the team. I understand around 30 hotels across Germany have been checked out in advance to ensure we have the best available. "We've already identified a training ground five minutes from the hotel which we will use every day, and we are within a good traveling distance to the venues we have been drawn to play in during the group phase.'' England will play Paraguay on June 10 in Frankfurt, Trinidad and Tobago on June 15 in Nuremberg, and Sweden on June 20 in Cologne. (AP)
