FIFA president Sepp Blatter has reaffirmed his belief that Brazil will deliver a successful World Cup in 2014.

The 77-year-old is in the country ahead of the Confederations Cup and attended a meeting with the Brazilian Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo to discuss progress ahead of the tournament.

“I am sure that the five time winners will present an outstanding competition in 2014,” he told Fifa.com.

“I am confident that through its economic power and strength of will, Brazil will be ready and deliver a wonderful World Cup.”

Rebelo has also given reassurances that the new stadiums will be ready ahead of the December 2013 deadline, and highlighted Brazil’s delight in hosting the tournament.

“The preparations for the World Cup will meet the expectations of the organisers and, of course, Brazil,” he said.

“This is a vital event for Brazil. We’re delighted and honoured to be able to host it.”
