FIFA's secretary general has serious concerns about Brazil's lack of progress completing the infrastructure to prepare for an influx of fans at the World Cup, believing the country is more concerned about winning the 2014 tournament.

Ahead of a visit next week, Jerome Valcke says "things are not working in Brazil ... a lot of things (are) late."

FIFA's top administrator questioned why there's not "more support ... more enthusiasm" from the authorities to complete the stadiums, hotels and transport networks.

Valcke believes Brazil's priority "is to win the World Cup. I'm not sure it's about organizing the World Cup."

He is frustrated about the "endless discussions" over the World Cup bill in Brazil, where it is feared FIFA would gain too much power. -Sapa-AP
