FIFA’s Secretary General, Jerome Valcke, said that the FIFA World Cup Brazil-2014 is turning out to be the best ever.
No doubt it is the best World Cup in terms of soccer. It is a fantastic Cup, Valcke told the Brazilian channel SporTV.
Valcke, one of those who had been most critical with the organizers of the Cup for its construction delays and logistical issues, has finally yielded to the evident popular support for the games, both in Brazil and in the rest of the planet.
“What we are seeing on the streets, in the cities where matches are taking place, is what everyone expected from Brazil; it is time to enjoy the best of soccer and see which teams will reach the semifinals,” he said, backing the President Dilma Rousseff’s predictions whenever the organizing committee was criticized: Brazil will be the Cup of all Cups.
