Brazil needs 12 new stadia to get the World Cup

If Brazil wants to host the 2014 World Cup, they need to build a dozen new soccer stadiums, or so says Brazil president Luiz Inacio `Lula' da Silva.

Lula believes his country will be up to the task of host the finals, but knows that big events need to take place in order to make it a reality. FIFA has already said that the country does not have a single stadium up to their World Cup standards.

Lula, who is campaigning for reelection, did not give any information on specific plans for building these stadiums.

Although the South American Federation voted in 2003 to back Brazil as their only candidate to host the 2014 finals, Colombia has recently said they would like to host the event.
