Legendary Brazilian forward Rivaldo chastised his country Thursday afternoon, vowing that their hosting of the World Cup Finals would be a complete failure.
The famous striker and World Cup winner of 2002 based his attack not on the many unfinished stadiums left around the country, but for how the money used for the global tournament should instead go to many public services that the nation requires at the moment.
"We knew this would happen," Rivaldo said after his team Mogi Mirim lost to Sao Paulo 4-0 in the Sao Paulo State Championship. "Brazil has alot to do like school, health and prison, not soccer fields for the World Cup taking so much money for one month."
