A bus carrying the Brazilian national football team Came under attack by protesters who hammered on on its sides while carrying placards protesting against the forthcoming World Cup. The team, including stars such as Neymar, David Luiz and Hulk, were on their way to a training session in Rio de Janeiro when a large group of demonstrators blocked their path covering the bus in stickers protesting the ever-growing cost of next month’s tournament. With the World Cup kicking off in Sao Paolo on June 12, there is increasing concern over how prepared Brazil is to play host, with rumours of violent protests over the coming weeks and stadiums and transport systems that are yet to even be completed, let alone tested. An estimated 300,000 visitors are expected to arrive in Brazil to take in the month-long tournament, with matches taking place everywhere from the humid Amazon region in the north, to the south east coastal city of Rio de Janeiro, where the World Cup final will be held. Ahead of the tournament kicking off in three weeks time, there is concern the country may not be ready, with testing not finished on many stadiums, and transport projects well behind schedule.
