Brazil may lose the right to hold World Cup 2014

 

Brazil may lose the right to host the matches of the FIFA World Cup in 2014 due to delays in the construction of a new stadium in the city of Sao Paulo. This statement was made by the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA). According to the original plan, the stadium is to be finished by December of this year, but it is expected that the works will last before February 2014.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international football tournament that is scheduled to take place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. This is the second time Brazil has hosted the competition, the first being the 1950 FIFA World Cup. Brazil is scheduled to become the fifth country to have hosted the FIFA World Cup twice, after Mexico, Italy, France and Germany. It is scheduled to be the first World Cup to be held in South America since the 1978 FIFA World Cup in Argentina, the first time two consecutive World Cups are staged outside Europe and the first time two consecutive World Cups are staged in the Southern Hemisphere (the 2010 FIFA World Cup was held in South Africa). This will be first FIFA World Cup to use goal-line technology

 

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
