World Cup Appearances:

USA's Best World Cup Performance

United States World Cup Preparations

United States will use Hamburg as their 2006 World Cup Finals base. The north German city has had long ties with America.

The first American Consulate in Hamburg was opened in 1790, during the time that Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, served as the nation’s first Secretary of State. Hamburg was also the port of embarkation for millions of people from West and East Europe seeking a new life in the New World.

USA Team Hotel

Park Hyatt Hamburg - USA Team Hotel for the 2006 World Cup Finals.
Park Hyatt Hamburg:
Bugenhagenstrasse 2, Hamburg.
What better chopice of hotel than the Hamburg Hyatt for the Americans. Located on the main shopping street, close to Hamburg station, the hotel is so discreet you could almost miss it if you're out window-shopping. You need to go up in a lift to the reception area and then the elegance hits you.

Hotels in Hamburg:
USA don't actually play in Hamburg but it's a very nice city to stay in all the same. Even in the knockout stages, to play the quarter-final game in Hamburg, Team USA would need to win their group and the 2nd Round match.

United States in the 2006 World Cup

US Soccer Federation
Group E

USA vs Czech Republic in Gelsenkirchen:
The Americans were totally outclassed in Gelsenkirchen and will need to be more adventurous and rethink their strategy, in their next two games, if they don't want to pull out early.

Italy vs USA in Kaiserslautern:
The United States started with the will to win and for the first twenty minutes made most of the running and flustered the Italians, but just lacked precision when in front of goal.

Ghana vs USA in Nürnberg:
As the Czech Rpeublic lost to Italy, a win would have assured United States a place in the knockout stage. But the same applied to Ghana and they wanted it more.

Knockout Stage

United States failed to qualify for the Second Round.
