“Where England lay down roots in South Africa next summer could be key to their hopes of winning the World Cup. That’s why coach Fabio Capello has been so exacting in choosing the base for his team. The Italian wants a private and secure hotel that boasts excellent training facilities and is based at altitude. After looking at sites in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Polokwane, attention has focused on the Royal Bafokeng Sports Campus in Rustenburg.” (BBC)
