FIFA executive in Brazil amid stadium concerns

SAO PAULO (AP) - A top FIFA executive has started his latest inspection of World Cup cities amid uncertainty about whether Brazil can complete its final six stadiums by the December deadline set by soccer's governing body.

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke is visiting Porto Alegre on Monday. He will then go to Cuiaba, where local organizers have yet to finish a bidding process for the seats at the new stadium. There were also problems in Curitiba, where construction was halted because of workers' safety concerns.

Brazilian organizers say all stadiums will be completed in time despite the setbacks. Valcke has made it clear FIFA will not accept the same delays that plagued stadium construction before this year's Confederations Cup.
