    <P>RIO DE JANEIRO - Football's governing body FIFA said it is still seeking guarantees that temporary structures will be built in time for the opening World Cup match at Sao Paulo's Itaquerao stadium on June 12. </P>
    <P>In a press conference in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke admitted time was running out for a funding deal to be struck between local government officials and developer Odebrecht. </P>
    <P>"Tomorrow we will have a solution. I am confident about Sao Paulo because they have a great developer in Odebrecht, which will deliver everything," Valcke said. </P>
    <P>Brazil's sports minister Aldo Rebelo said the federal government was involved in the discussions. </P>
    <P>"We are <a title="Adidas 11Pro KAKA" href="http://www.2014-soccershoes.com/adidas-11pro-kaka-c-9.html"<STRONG>Adidas 11Pro KAKA</STRONG></a> working so that the prefecture, the state government and the owner of the stadium can reach an agreement," Rebelo said. </P>
    <P>The Itaquerao, which will host six World Cup matches, has been given an April 15 deadline for the completion of construction work. </P>

    <P>KEY BISCAYNE, Florida - Novak Djokovic benefited from an erroneous call and claimed he didn't realize he had broken the rules. When Andy Murray walked to the net and challenged him about it, Djokovic responded with a shrug and a sheepish smile.</P>
    <P>Murray lost the dispute, and the match. The pivotal ruling against the defending champion helped Djokovic win 7-5, 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the Sony Open.</P>
    <P>Roger Federer was up a <a title="Brazil world cup shoes" href="http://www.2014-soccershoes.com/2014-brazil-world-cup-c-12.html"<STRONG>Brazil world cup shoes</STRONG></a> service break twice in the second set but lost to No 20-seeded Kei Nishikori 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Nishikori will play Djokovic on Friday.</P>
    <P>The point that aggravated Murray occurred at the start of the 12th game, when he was serving at 5-6. Djokovic charged forward to volley a short ball and hit it for a winner.</P>
    <P>Murray argued - and TV replays confirmed - he should have been awarded the point because Djokovic's racket was on the far side of the net when he hit the ball. Chair umpire Damian Steiner declined to change his call, and such rulings can't be <a title="ctr360 soccer shoes" href="http://www.2014-soccershoes.com/nike-ctr360-soccer-shoes-c-22.html"<STRONG>ctr360 soccer shoes</STRONG></a> appealed for video review.</P>
    <P>Murray briefly discussed the matter with Djokovic.</P>
    <P>"I went and asked Novak, and he told me he was over the net," Murray said.</P>
    <P>"Look, it might be my mistake," Djokovic said. "I think I crossed the net with the racket. I didn't touch the net. Maybe the rule is that you are not allowed to pass on his side with the racket. I'm not sure. You tell me."</P>
    <P>That is indeed the rule. Djokovic said that if he had understood it correctly, he would have conceded the point.</P>
    <P>A flustered Murray committed unforced backhand errors on the next three points to lose the game and the set.</P>
    <P>"Obviously, that distracted him mentally, and after that he gave the set away," Djokovic said.</P>
    <P>Murray took a lead in the second set but lost the final four games and the last 12 points. Afterward, he downplayed the bad call.</P>
    <P>"I'm not angry," he said. "It maybe had a slight bearing on that game, but I was still up a break in the second set."</P>
    <P>Nishikori will be playing in only his second ATP Masters 1000 semifinal, and his first in 2 years.</P>
    <P>"I thought I really played well, especially in the third set," Nishikori said. "I was

    Both hypervenom phantom Kiev and Washington say nike elastico finale that Russian forces are massing in large numbers near Ukraine's eastern border -- and that they represent a threat to Ukraine and potentially to other former Soviet states.
    It's hard to pin down an exact figure, amid a welter of different views, but the U.S. and Ukraine agree the number of Russian soldiers present is rising fast.
    Russia, meanwhile, says it is simply conducting exercises in its southern and western military regions.
    Here's what the different parties are saying about the apparent Russian troop buildup:
    United States:
    Russia may have as many as 40,000 troops near its western border with Ukraine, according to two U.S. officials.
    But the officials stress this is only an estimate, largely based on satellite imagery, saying that it is difficult to come to a firm assessment because the Russians are continuing to move units around. Earlier in the week, U.S. officials put the number at more than 30,000, up by 10,000 from what it was a week to 10 days before.
