Sao Paulo -  FIFA says nearly 200 000 tickets will be available in the last online sales phase for the Soccer World Cup in Brazil.

Football's governing body says fans will be able to purchase tickets for 54 of the 64 matches beginning on Tuesday.

The tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis on FIFA.com.

The 10 games that aren't available are the final, the Brazil-Croatia opener, as well as eight other group stage matches: Mexico-Cameroon, England-Italy, Argentina-Bosnia, Brazil-Mexico, Spain-Chile, Cameroon-Brazil, Croatia-Mexico, and Australia-Spain.

FIFA's marketing director Thierry Weil says it's "the last chance for fans to secure their tickets."

More than 2.5 million tickets have already been allocated, including through FIFA's hospitality programs. The general public has purchased about 1.5 million tickets.
