Construction continues at the Maracana soccer stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Brazil was granted permission by FIFA on Thursday to host the Confederations Cup with six venues including Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Recife, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte and Fortaleza, as originally planned. FIFA had previously announced the six cities as hosts, but said Recife and Salvador would only be ratified if they showed significant improvement in their preparations. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana) less
