Germany are taking charge of their World Cup base in Brazil.
Germany will construct a purpose-built training base from scratch for the finals in Brazil.
It is being built by a Munich-based property entrepreneur, and the German FA said in a statement the training pitches and a media centre were within five minutes' walk.
Meanwhile, England's choice of a hotel in Rio has been the subject of scare stories about open sewers nearby and security risks from a nearby favela, though the FA insists the squad are completely happy with their base.
