Sao Paulo:

The Brazilian government says construction work at World Cup stadiums is on schedule in all 12 host cities.

With 800 days until the World Cup, the government says more than half the work is completed at five stadiums. At another five, more than 30 percent of the construction is done. Two are at just 20 percent - the Beira-Rio stadium in the southern city of Porto Alegre and the Arena das Dunas in northeastern Natal.

The Castelao stadium in the northeastern city of Fortaleza is closest to completion, with 60 percent of the work done.

The government said on Tuesday that renovation at famed Maracana Stadium, site of the final, is 39 percent finished.
