FIFA said Friday that Brazil was working flat-out to deliver the World Cup on time but warned that much work lay ahead before the June 12 kick-off.
General Secretary of FIFA, Jerome Valcke, stressed there was still "a lot of work to do" after his latest trip to the host country that took in visits to three stadiums -- Manaus, Brasilia and Porto Alegre.
"We are far beyond the normal speed limit you can have on the road and this will be the case until June," Valcke said.
"We are working at full speed," he said, after a board meeting of the Local Organizing Committee.
