With roughly two more months to go for the 20th FIFA World Cup, Brazil is all gung-ho to host the best and most successful World Cup ever.

That said, promised plans of getting three more stadiums and several airports has been shelved. Nevertheless, the head of FIFA is optimistic that the 2014 World Cup will "be the most successful of all time."

Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff said she had a word with Sepp Blatter and accepted his invitation to attend FIFA's 64th Congress in Sao Paulo on June 10, two days before the World Cup kicks off.

"Blatter told the president he is 'certain that the World Cup will be the most successful of all time'," Rousseff's office wrote in a blog post.

Blatter also revealed that with just 63 days to go for the tournament, 2.5 million tickets have already been sold, which is almost 75 per cent of the total seats.

Three months ago, Blatter had told a Swiss newspaper that no country like Brazil had been so tardy in organizing a FIFA World Cup in many years.

In December, Blatter had appealed to "God, Allah, whoever" to help build the 12 stadiums within the stipulated time.
