The England team will be based at the Schlosshotel Buhlerhohe - a luxury hotel in the Black Forest - for their World Cup campaign next summer.

The hotel is close to the spa town of Baden-Baden and coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said: "I'm delighted.

"It is so important that we have the right base camp as this will be the players home and set the atmosphere as we prepare for all of our games.

"We have already identified a training ground five minutes from the hotel."

The hotel has 90 rooms and Eriksson is happy with its location in relation to England's group stage fixtures.

"Additionally, we have the beautiful spa town of Baden-Baden only a few miles away which has a marvellous atmosphere with some wonderful restaurants and cafes.

"I'm already very excited about the World Cup next summer and now the draw has been made and we've chosen our hotel, I can't wait for the tournament to begin.

"Hopefully this hotel will be the launch pad for us to achieve success in Germany."
