The Czech World Cup football team will be based at a lake side hotel near the town of Westerburg for this summer's finals in Germany, the squad's spokesman said on Friday. The chosen location is around 120 kilometres from Cologne, where the Czechs will start their world Cup campaign against the United States. The Czech team, which has qualified for the first time for the World Cup since the country's creation in 1993, will move to its German base on June 7.
