England to stay in 3,175-pound-a-night hotel in S. Africa

Posted By: Staff

London, June 3 (ANI): Coach Fabio Capello and his 23-man squad will stay at the 20-million-pound five-star Royal Bafokeng Sports Campus in Phokeng, Rustenburg for the duration of the FIFA World Cup.

According to the Daily Star, each player will stay in a room that costs 3,175 pounds a night.

All 76 suites boast extra-long beds, meaning 6 ft 7in forward Peter Crouch, 29, can sleep without getting his feet cold.

Every room has a 32in plasma TV with piped-in British programs, sound-proofing, extra-deep carpets, granite tabletops, double-sink bathrooms with glass showers and internet points plus wireless.

Bedrooms also have mini-bars, but Capello can check his stars are not raiding them via in-room monitoring systems.

England kick off their campaign against the USA in Rustenberg on June 12. (ANI)
