Sao Paulo: Brazilian workers are racing to complete the stadium that will host the World Cup's first game, wiping seats, checking beams and installing wiring just days before the opening whistle.
As night fell on Saturday, helmeted workers were still toiling away on two long-delayed stands of Sao Paulo's new Corinthians Arena where Brazil will take on Croatia on Thursday.
The original deadline was December 31, but preparations have been hit by chronic delays, cost overruns and construction accidents that killed three in Sao Paulo.
