World Cup pressure builds for Brazil's Cuiaba

Central host city is still struggling to get things ready with many promised infrastructure projects left unfinished.

    There are just days to go before the Brazilian town of Cuiaba hosts its first football World Cup match.

    But the town is still struggling to get things ready, and it looks like many of the promised infrastructure will not be completed on time. 

    The situation has been clouded by a corruption scandal involving the arrest of the state governor.
