'We want actions, not words' - Blatter unhappy with Brazil's World Cup 2014 preparation progress

Fifa president Sepp Blatter has vented his frustration with the lack of progress in Brazil's preparations for the World Cup in 2014.

The head of the governing body for world football has been highly critical of the speed of progress in South America, with the construction of stadiums, transport infrastructure and hotels running behind schedule.
 The 76-year-old's comments come just weeks after Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke was criticised for stating that Brazil needed a "kick up the backside" to get everything ready on time.

On Thursday, Brazil's lower house passed the much-anticipated World Cup bill, but Blatter admitted that he has grown tired of the saga.

"At least the World Cup bill has been passed," Blatter is quoted by Globoesporte as saying.

"Now it is up to them. We want actions - not just more words."

Meanwhile, Valcke admitted that fans and members of the press may have to seek accommodation in cities close to where the matches will be held if hotel demands exceed the limits.

Looking to book SUPER BOWL HOTELS? Chek out and I booked with them last year and they upgraded me! They offer Luxury Lodging and affordable accommodations for all OLYMPICS, NCAA FINAL FOUR, FIFA WORLD CUP HOTELS, F1 Grand Prix in Austin and all events. 917-224-1231. I was lucky last year, they upgradedme to the HILTON 2 minutes from the stadium!

Well, even if the FIFA World Cup Brazil is near approaching, there are still lots of issues that are surfacing. I hope they can still make this event really successful.

Apartamentos e casas a venda em Fortaleza said...
Hi i am a citizen with double nationality (portuguese, but living in brasil) in one of the cities that will receive the world cup.
I was a victim of robbery and hijacking with my 4 year old child.
They were two persons one male and its girlfriend and when i was just arriving the car they said to i get in the car they will "need a ride", they forced me to put my son inside the car and the man pointed me a gun all of the time (it was a teenager arround 16 or 17 years old) and this was in daylight 16:00 in neighbourhood cocó, in fortaleza, ceará, brasil. Not pleased they robbed me all what i had in my car, since wedding ring, cell phones, money the works, then they forced me to drive about over an our arround the city with the gun pointed to me, the guy was in the back seat behind me pointing me the gun all the time, and the girl was in the front seat and my son was in the seat behind her, as if that was not enought they "called a partner" from my cell phone to meet them in a certain spot and force me to go there to pick him up, wich i did, when i arrived there, they yeld at me to get out of the car and try to force me to enter the trunck of my car wich i denied with the excuse i was clasutrophobic, and even that if he shoot me i would not enter in the trunk of my car ( i did that because i heard they planned to go to my house where it was my wife and my other son with 5 months old) so i prefered to take a shot right there than put in danger even more people of my family. at that moment and after some verbal exchange of words and as i did not enter the trunk the women went to my son and i asked imediatly to LEAVE MY SON ALONE i shouted out loud, and then she said i could take him, wich i did, and in the meantime they went to the car to loot the rest of the things they want in the car i ran with my son on my hands about 1 mile until i reached the main road and asked for help to the first person who passed, i was lucky they help me out and take me to the nearest police car, after i give them the info on what had happened they send me home and say to wait at home that they will inform me if they did get the car or the burglars. After about 30 minutes or one hour more or less they find the car in the same spot where i lefted it, (the burglars didnt know how to drive a manual transmission car) if it was an automatic transmission vehicle they would take it. Bottom line DONT CAME TO BRASIL, AND SPECIALLY NOT TO FORTALEZA TO WACH THE WORLD CUP GAMES IN HERE, THE DANGER IS IN EVERY CORNER, THE POLICE IS NOT ENOUGH AND THE LAWS ARE IN FAVOR OF THE BURGLARS (YES I KNOW ITS AWKWORD BUT ITS HOW IT WORKS) most of this situations the burglars are less than 18 years old because they know they dont go to jail because they are under-age, and thats why they keep it doing it. If you want i will be available for an interview too.
