The match in Bloemfontein on Sunday is one of the highest profile fixtures of the knockout round. FIFA and the tournament's local organising committee will ensure that a large number of police will allow everything to run smoothly.
Valcke said: "We have agreed with the South African Police Service that there will be a number of additional security measures, a few which you will see and a few that you will not. Kicking off at 4pm (local time) makes things easier than a night game as well."
LOC chief executive Danny Jordaan said. "Not just Bloemfontein but the whole country is waiting for this match. We have had a meeting with the police to talk about security and I'm sure fans will go there and have a wonderful time. A huge contest is expected and we look forward to this event. It came earlier on than expected but this is World Cup."
