Brazil need to build new stadia in 2014 bid

Brazil president Luiz Inacio `Lula' da Silva has defended his country's candidature to host the 2014 World Cup but admits the nation will have to construct a minimum of a dozen new stadiums to meet FIFA's hosting criteria.

'To have the World Cup in 2014 here, we'll have to start thinking about building at least 12 new stadiums',' said Lula.

'According to FIFA regulations, we have no stadium in suitable conditions to organise a World Cup match.'

The president also suggested the Brazil national team could play a friendly match in Lebanon to help the country's recovery following the recent conflict with Israel.

'Lebanon needs help from the Brazilian national team,' he said. 'Who says that the national team cannot play a game to symbolise peace?'
