FIFA president Sepp Blatter recently claimed three countries were in line to step in should South Africa not be ready for the tournament in two years´ time, but German FA (DFB) chief Theo Zwanziger feels staging the World Cup for the second time in four years would be too much to ask for the 2006 hosts.
"Our country is fundamentally not ready to host the 2010 World Cup if the problems in South Africa are not resolved in time," he told the Cologne Express. "We would be barking up the wrong tree if we tried to repeat the fantastic summer fairytale of 2006."
