The high-speed rail line linking Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro may not be fully completed by the 2014 World Cup, Brazil's Transportation Minister Alfredo Nascimento said on Wednesday.

Nascimento acknowledged the bullet train could be functioning only partially by the time Brazil hosts the World Cup, unable to connect the cities which are expected to host the final and the opening match in 2014.

Nascimento told the private Agencia Estado news service it should take five years to finalize the project, but the auction for the rights to build the country's first high-speed rail line are not expected to happen until 2010.

Brazil's bullet train will take 105 minutes to travel between Rio and Sao Paulo, compared to a 45-minute plane ride or a nearly five-hour car trip.
