According to English media reports FIFA president Sepp Blatter has criticized Brazil’s slow preparations for the 2014 World Cup.

Six of the host nation’s 12 stadiums have reportedly failed to meet December 31st deadline, which has also affected work on hotels, airports and roads.

The 77-year-old president, who has been working for FIFA since 1975, said in his 39-year long career Brazil is the only host country which has been so far behind in its preparations.

“No country has been so far behind in preparations since I have been at Fifa,” Blatter said in a statement.

“It is the only host nation which has had so much time – seven years – in which to prepare.”

The tournament opens on June 12th, when Brazil will face Croatia in Sao Paulo’s Arena Corinthians, where two workers died after a crane collapsed on November 27th.

Brazil, which was lasted awarded the World Cup in 1950, was elected to host this year’s finals in 2007.

    calm yourself blatter. the stadiums will be finished in time. i personally believe 12 stadiums is way too much. i believe fifa asks too much from the host nations. why aren’t 6 venues enough to host the world cup???? when did this 12 host cities venue idea begin? does fifa think every host nation is as rich as UAE??? fools. this 12 venue idea will be given considerable thought in the hear future when advanced technology allows us to maintain the stadium grass for the duration of the tournament. its only a matter of time blatter; its only a matter of time.
