Five hours after sales opened Tuesday on FIFA's website, tickets were available for only 20 of the 64 matches.

The match with the most tickets still available was Bosnia-Iran in the northeast city of Salvador. Only a few second-round matches remain on sale.

FIFA put nearly 200,000 tickets on sale in the final phase on a first-come, first-serve basis. Ten matches were not available, including the Brazil-Croatia opener and the final at Maracana Stadium.

FIFA said more than 2.5 million tickets have been allocated and the public has bought about 1.5 million.
