Journos Marvel at World Cup Stadia

Foreign journalists have converged in South Africa for a LOC-led tour of the World Cup stadia. One journalist from Brazil, host of the 2014 World Cup, says it will be hard for his country to match the quality of the stadia built for South Africa's World CUp.

"In Brazil we're concerned about the stadiums we will have," Raposo said during a recent interview at Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg. "I think it will be difficult to compete with the stadiums that Africa has [built]."

Raposo, a producer at Bandeirantes TV in Sao Paulo, is one of 120 international and local journalists currently touring South Africa's 10 host stadiums on a trip initiated by FIFA and the Local Organising Committee (LOC).
