Security officials have revealed that items valued at 53,000 euros ($62,000) were moved from three rooms in a downtown Oslo hotel.

Concise News gathered that the bandits were said to have used an old magnetic room key or a stolen one to gain entrance.

However, footage would be examined to know the exact way they gained entrance to the hotel.

AFP quoted a Police spokeswoman Aslaug Rohne to have said that the robbery probably took place as Panama were being beaten by Norway on Wednesday in a game that ended 1-0.

The minnows, making their debut in Russia, will take on England, Belgium and Tunisia in Group G.

They start their campaign against Belgium in Sochi on June 18, just at Tunisia tackles England.
