Spain World Cup Preparations

Spain Team Hotel

Sport Hotel Kamen-Kaiserau - The unbelievably sad choice of a World Cup base by Spain.
SportCentrum Kamen-Kaiserau:
The perpetual World Cup under-achievers have gone and under-achieved in choice of World Cup Hotel as well.

Park Inn Kamen/Unna - Better Accommodation than the Spain World Cup Team have.
Park Inn Kamen/Unna:
Kamen Karree 2/3, Kamen.
If you want to stay near the Spanish team and feel that football fans deserve better than the players get, check-in to the Park Inn Kamen/Unna. The four-star hotel offers 94 comfortable rooms on three floors, Internet connections in the rooms and there's a fitness centre; just in case Luis Aragones needs your services.

Kammen:
Situated at the eastern periphery of the Ruhr basin between Sauerland and Münsterland, Kamen is the geographical focal point of the county Unna. Located about 20 minutes from Dortmund-Wickede airport, which is handy as Spain are playing in Leipzig, Stuttgart and Kaiserslautern.

Spain in the 2006 World Cup

Real Federación Española de Fútbol
Group H

Spain vs Ukraine in Leipzig:
Spain sped off to a blistering four-goal start during their 2006 World Cup opening game, in Leipzig.

Spain vs Tunisia in Stuttgart:
Spain spent most of the game trailing to Jaouhar Mnari's 8th minute goal made the scoreline look more respectable with an injury time penalty, that Torres slotted under the goalkeeper.

Saudi Arabia vs Spain in Kaiserslautern:
Spain had already qualified and a win would guarantee them top spot. They did that effortless with the so-called reserves in their squad.

Knockout Stage

Second Round
Spain vs France in Hannover:
Spain looked liked they'd done enough to take the game into extra-time but Zinedine Zidane had other ideas.
