Coaches downplay problems with World Cup preparations

FLORIANOPOLIS, Brazil -- National team coaches are keeping a close eye on Brazil's World Cup preparations but say the problems endured by the host country are not causing a lot of concern.

After a workshop in Brazil on Wednesday, some of the coaches who will return with their teams in June cited traffic and street protests as things to watch for during the World Cup. However, they were confident that the hosts would deliver a successful tournament.

Brazil is struggling to finish all the work needed for soccer's showcase event.

Five stadiums remain under construction with less than four months before the opener on June 12. One host city was on the brink of being excluded from the competition, and widespread demonstrations against the local government are expected.
