ZURICH (AP) — The presidents of Brazil and FIFA have expressed their faith in organizing a successful World Cup, amid missed construction deadlines and warnings about dropping one host city.

Brazil President Dilma Rousseff spoke at a joint news conference with FIFA President Sepp Blatter after their one-hour meeting. No questions were allowed.

Rousseff says "We are ready. We will be staging the cup of all cups."

She said her government was strongly committed to completing all the public works required, which she described as "relatively simple" to build.
