Brazil Maracana Reopening

The Maracana re-opened yesterday with a “Friends of Bebeto vs Friends of Ronaldo” charity game laid on especially for the workers who have been toiling away on it over the past three years, in which the latter Brazilian striker rolled back the years (and the flab) to score with a rinky dinky elastico-type thing in an 8-5 win for his side…

Full highlights…

As for the stadium itself, it would appear that the grand re-opening didn’t go entirely smoothly, with Brazilian newspapers keen to point out that the Maracana is riddled with “problems”, rough edges and unfinished bits.

According to Folha de Sao Paulo, the problems range from “uneven flooring with small gaps and holes”, to “flooding in the VIP area and a dysfunctional lift”. They also reckon workers were still finishing building a wall as the exhibition game went on, and that the ticket offices, turnstiles and gates were not working properly.

Tut tut. Everyone’s a critic.
