Durban - No criminal case has been opened after the Durban hotel rooms of two Spanish soccer players were allegedly burgled, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Friday.

"I have checked with the police and the hotel and found nothing. No case has been opened," said Brigadier Phindile Radebe.

The Associated Press, quoting Spanish media, reported that the rooms of players Sergio Busquets and Pedro Rodriguez were broken into ahead of their World Cup semi-final win over Germany at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday night.

Busquets had documents and about €800 (about R7 600) stolen, Pedro about €1 000 (about R9 500).
