Sports Minister Vijay Goel conducted an inspection of the Nehru Stadium, and said the stadium is still not fully ready.
“I’m happy with the pace of preparations and more than 90 percent of the work has been done,” Goel told reporters. The Sports Minister also asked the stadium authorities to provide a proper date for the handover of the entire stadium. “I have asked the authorities to give a timeline to when can they provide me with the stadium, if we had to host the FIFA World Cup tomorrow, how much prepared we are,” he said.
Mr. Goel was also asked about the best venue in the tournament. To this, the Sports Minister said Kolkata. “I have visited Kochi twice, I will say it is Kolkata. It is a new stadium and it is made with passion,” Goel said.
