Global football chief Sepp Blatter insisted preparations for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil were on track on Tuesday despite construction delays and a deadly accident which mean three stadiums will miss an end-of-year deadline to be ready.

“We have just received a report. There are some small delays in construction of stadia. But so small that with one exception (Sao Paulo) we can say everything is ready,” said Blatter. The issues are “so small we can close our eyes,” he added.AFP
