Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo says Brazil needs to find a way to speed up the completion of the six stadiums still being built for the 2014 World Cup.

Rebelo on Thursday said Brazil learned from the Confederations Cup that it has to do a better job to guarantee the stadiums are finished by the December deadline established by FIFA.

Only two of the six venues needed for the warm-up tournament played earlier this year were completed by the initial deadline set by football's governing body.

Rebelo says: "We have to take a look on how to improve on the delivery of the six World Cup stadiums that are left."

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke reiterated recently that it's crucial to have all 12 World Cup stadiums ready this year.
