FIFA officials in Brazil to discuss 2014 World Cup

FIFA officials are concluding a week in Brazil to discuss preparations for the 2014 World Cup.
FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has met with local organizers and government officials to get updates on the country's arrangements ahead of football's biggest showcase.
On the final day of his visit Friday, Valcke is also expected to visit several areas of Rio de Janeiro to choose a venue for the World Cup draw and find a location for the tournament's media center.
There was no official word on whether Valcke reviewed Sao Paulo's latest stadium proposal. Corinthians has announced it will build a new arena for the tournament but the project has not been officially unveiled to FIFA. It is the only host city without a venue.
