FIFA has finally acknowledged there might be something wrong with the Jabulani World Cup ball but won't act on any problems until after the tournament. Many players have likened the Jabulani to a "supermarket ball," saying it is too unpredictable and flies too easily.
"We're not deaf," FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said. "FIFA is not unreceptive about what has been said about the ball."
FIFA will discuss the matter with coaches and teams after the World Cup then meet with manufacturer Adidas.
