Blatter concerned at 2014 progress

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has warned Brazil they need to speed up preparations to host the 2014 World Cup.
 “I would like to tell my Brazilian colleagues about the 2014 World Cup. It’s tomorrow. The Brazilians think it’s just the day after tomorrow,” he said.
 “We are hoping for a little good faith. Things are not advancing very quickly,” he said this week.
 Brazil’s sports minister Orlando Silva replied by inviting Blatter to the South American country to see the work going on for himself.
 “I’m convinced he’ll be reassured Brazil will stage a very good World Cup,” Silva said. – Reuters
