Sao Paulo stadium half-built by June

The Arena de Sao Paulo in Brazil could be unfinished when the World Cup starts in June, according to reports.

Newspaper Itaquerao has claimed that the stadium won’t be completed by the time Brazil play Croatia in the first match of the tournament.

They insist that the roof won’t be ready in time for July 12, whilst big screens at either end of the ground are unlikely to be installed.

The stadium is set to host six matches at the tournament, including one semi-final.

Italy will only visit Sao Paulo should they win Group D and get to the last four stage.
