Poland World Cup Preparations

Poland Team Hotel

Gilde Sporthotel Fuchsbachtal - Poland World Cup Finals Base
Gilde Sporthotel Fuchsbachtal:
Bergstrasse 54, Barsinghausen.
Like Paraguay, Poland are not interested in a luxury stay at an historic Castle during the World Cup Finals, rather they've chosen the Sportschule Barsinghausen Gilde, near Hannover, as their base.

Hotels in Hannover:
Hannover would be a good base for Polish fans, during the group phase at least. Poland play their last game in Hannover, while both Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen are only a couple of hours away by train, or easily reached by motorway. Fans can also reach Barsinghausen by S-Bahn in half an hour and the # 501 bus goes from the station to the Sporthotel.

Echo Hotel, Barsinghausen - Close to the Poland World Cup Camp.
If you'd rather stay in Barsinghausen, check out the Echo Hotel; a modern, friendly hotel with bright and comfortable rooms.

Poland in the 2006 World Cup

Polish Football Association
Group A

Poland vs Ecuador in Gelsenkirchen:
Poland were short on ideas and lacked the movement needed to bring the power of Teamgeist into the spirit of play.

Germany vs Poland in Dortmund:
Poland, with ten men for the last fifteen minutes, did just about everything they could to keep Germany out; until the last minute of goalmouth drama.

Costa Rica vs Poland in Hannover:
Poland's 2006 World Cup Finals ended on a slight high, as they managed a three points consolotion prize.

Knockout Stage

Poland failed to qualify for the Second Round.
