Brasilia:

Brazil arrives at the one-year mark to the World Cup, acknowledging mistakes in its preparations but vowing to be ready on time.

Organizers had difficulties getting stadiums ready for the Confederations Cup, the warm-up tournament that begins in Brasilia on Saturday. Brazil officials are promising that things will be different ahead of the World Cup.

FIFA says it won't accept it any other way. Brazilian authorities and local organizers say the delays that plagued construction work before the Confederations Cup won't be an issue next year.

The government says that infrastructure projects that were not ready for the Confederations Cup will be finished in time for the World Cup.
