England's World Cup hotel has out of date food confiscated

eNewsletter

The hotel where England will be based during the World Cup in Brazil has had out of date food confiscated from it's kitchens, just a couple of weeks before the squad is due to arrive there.

Butter, salmon and parma ham was recently taken from the Royal Tulip Hotel by health inspectors Procon.

The consumer protection authority stated: "In Sao Conrado, at the Hotel Royal Tulip, where the England team will be based, 2.362kg of unusable butter, Parma ham and salmon was seized."

The FA said there were no concerns about the standard of food England's players will consume and assured meals will be prepared by a chef travelling with their party, who has himself been to the hotel several times to check the facilities.

The squad are currently training at their St. George's Park base ahead of their final friendly on home turf against Peru on Friday, before heading to Miami where they will play two more warm up games, before finally heading to Brazil ahead of their first group game against Italy on June 14th.

Incidentally, Italy's hotel also had food taken away as part of the same inspection.
