No World Cup in Sao Paulo?

In the middle of the world cup of South Africa, the Fifa has announced (rather quietly) that the Morumbi stadium in Sao Paulo and surrounding infrastructure is not suited for a world cup game...

This does not really come as a surprise - during a game I recently saw in the stadium, I was afraid parts of the ceiling would come down and I walked for 10 minutes to find food that went beyond dry popcorn.

But I am sure there will be some "jeitinho" to find an alternative - maybe they can build a new stadium?

The picture above shows a (poor) design that was planned to "pimp" the stadium for the world cup...
