FIFA president Sepp Blatter is not happy with the preparations for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but hopes Brazil would be ready to host the tournament despite the slow pace.

Brazil is struggling to build the infrastructure needed for the World Cup and the eight-team 2013 Confederations Cup and Blatter will be meeting top Brazilian officials next week to discuss progress.

"Somewhere there are some delays and what we are doing now is to make sure that what has not been (done) in the past will be done as soon as possible and not later," Blatter was quoted as saying by Reuters.

"For the time being we are a little bit concerned about some constructions. But you know, constructions, if you push them and to put a lot of energy behind, then you can be ready on time," he said.
