Chile back Brazil's bid for 2014 World Cup

RIO DE JANEIRO, April 17 (Reuters) - Brazil has thanked Chile for supporting its plans to host the 2014 World Cup following FIFA president Sepp Blatter's suggestion that the Chileans could launch a joint bid with Argentina instead.

Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) president Ricardo Teixeira sent official messages on Monday to his opposite number in Chile, Reinaldo Sanchez, and the head of the Chilean government's sports agency, Catalina Depassier, the CBF said on its official website.

With the 10 South American federations backing Brazil as their only candidate, the CBF also reproduced a recent newspaper interview with Depassier.

'For us, it's very clear: the South American countries and football federations have given their backing to Brazil to organise the 2014 World Cup and we will respect this choice,' Depassier said in the article.

South America is due to host the 2014 World Cup under the new system, beginning in Africa in 2010, in which FIFA rotates the tournament between continents.

On Thursday Blatter told the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper that Brazil still had to meet the FIFA standards for a host country and added that it had a long way to go.

'For the time being, I don't think Brazil has a (single) stadium for the Cup,' said Blatter.
