Potchefstroom – Spain players Sergio Busquets and Pedro Rodriguez were robbed ahead of their World Cup semi-final win over Germany in Durban.

Spanish media reported the players' rooms were broken into ahead of their 1-0 victory on Wednesday, with Busquets losing documents and about $1 014. Pedro reportedly lost about $1 267 from his safe.

Busquets said on Friday that "nobody likes to be robbed ... but I'll exchange all of my documents for the World Cup."

The Spanish federation would not comment.

Spain plays the Netherlands in Sunday's final.

Three Greece players also had money stolen from their hotel rooms just outside Durban earlier in the tournament.
