Brazilian protests will not cancel Confederations Cup

Fifa has denied that the Confederations Cup, currently being contested, could be cancelled because of the mass protests across Brazil. Reports in the Brazilian media say the football tournament may be cancelled, but Fifa has dismissed these reports.

"Neither Fifa nor the local organising committee have ever discussed the possibility of cancelling the tournament," a Fifa spokesman told BBC Sport. "There are currently no plans to discuss it.

"These reports are pure speculation."
