Brazil Marks One-Year Until 2014 World Cup, Vows It Will Be Ready
Published June 13, 2013
BLATTER OPTIMISTIC: FIFA President Joseph Blatter said that he is optimistic that Brazil will be ready to host a quality World Cup when the event gets started next summer. Blatter: "I am a happy president because we're only one year away, which marks an outstanding milestone. Brazil, with 200 million people and the sixth-most important economy in the world, is like a continent, a power not only in football but also economically. I am convinced that one of the legacies of the World Cup will be its contribution to Brazil also becoming a power in the field of social and cultural values. In football there are no differences or social classes" (LA AFICION, 6/12).
