Brazil lags in World Cup preparations

This article was taken from another site (see link below) and posted on this blog by Michael Leitch for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES.

It is exactly two years until the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off in Brazil.

The government has an ambitious plan for 12 host cities across the country. But preparations, from building stadiums to expanding airports, have been slow. Five per cent of the projects have been finished, 41 per cent have not yet been started, and 75 per cent of the stadiums [8 of 12] are not even half way complete.
But then some in Brazil feel that while the pace of construction has been slow, things will work out in the end.


1. Do you think Brazil will be able to complete all the stadiums before the World Cup in 2014?

2. What do you think would be the scenario if Brazil is not able to complete construction/reforms in time for the games.
