Despite delays, Brazil is heading for the goal line in its World Cup preparations, President Dilma Rousseff said on Tuesday, 100 days before the start of the tournament.
"Today is a very special date for all Brazilians. There are 100 days to go to the Cup and the country is in the final furlong with preparations for the grand fiesta," Rousseff said on her Twitter feed.
She added the country will put on its best face, with all 12 venues from Tuesday night bathing their main public buildings and tourist attractions in Brazilian green and yellow lights.
