Togo in training, "Ticos" on tour

Following an official welcome to Germany at the start of the week, early arrivals Togo stage their first full-up training session at 5.00pm on Wednesday 17 May at the Allgäu stadium in Wangen.

The Togo training session will be open exclusively to accredited media representatives.

Wednesday also sees Costa Rica, Germany‘s opponents in the Opening Match on 9 June in Munich, begin a one-week training camp in Lahr, including a warm-up match against a regional select XI on 20 May.

The Central Americans subsequently depart Germany on 23 May for a friendly against a Barcelona regional XI.

Costa Rica return to the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ host nation on 25 May, although their stay will again be punctuated by trips overseas.

Following an official greeting at Frankfurt Airport, the "Ticos" will transfer to their Team Base Camp near Heidelberg at the Holiday Inn in Walldorf, before leaving the country for two further warm-up fixtures, meetings with Ukraine on 28 May in Kyiv, and the Czech Republic on 30 May in Jablonec.
