Brazilian President: World Cup exceeded expectations

Rousseff is standing firm on the government's decision to host the 2014 competition

Dilma Rousseff believes that Brazil succeeded in its running of this summer's tournament.

Her government has been heavily criticised for overspending on the World Cup stadiums and the delays to a large number of construction projects associated with the competition.  

President Rousseff told Al Jazeera: "The country not only exceeded specific points, such as the full operation of airports, but also the expectations of those who -- promoted a negative campaign against the World Cup."
