FIFA Official Admits South Africa Has Hard Work and Little Time

Jerome Valcke, secretary general of FIFA, admits that there is a lot of work to be done to get South Africa ready to host the World Cup, and that finishing the work may require some overtime work.

"At this stage, we couldn't play the opening game. That's a fact. At this stage, we have 700,000 tickets still to sell, at this stage I can make a list of things that aren't ready for the World Cup. We have 108 days - it seems short, it is short, but even if we have to stay awake all night, every day, we will be ready by the time of the World Cup."
