German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has accepted the role of understudy to great rival Jens Lehmann for the 2006 World Cup.

"I've come to the conclusion that it's important for the national team for me to be there, despite my disappointment," the 36-year-old Kahn told a news conference in Munich.

"This can't be about personal vanity.

Coach Juergen Klinsmann settled Germany's long-standing goalkeeping question on Friday when he revealed that Arsenal's Lehmann would be the number one for the hosts for the June 9-July 9 tournament.

Kahn captained Germany to the final of the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. He was named the tournament's best player, despite a mistake that led to Brazil's first goal in the 2-0 final defeat.
