A Brazilian fan has died after being struck by a toilet bowl hurled in clashes after a soccer game in a World Cup host city, just over a month before Brazil stages the event.
 
Santa Cruz, based in the north-eastern coastal city of Recife, had drawn with visiting Parana when violence erupted outside the ground.
 
Fans clashed upon leaving the Arruda stadium, across town from a brand new World Cup venue.
 
Some ripped out toilet bowls and threw them at fans congregated below, fatally injuring one, a police spokesman said.
 
Police named the dead man as Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva.
 
His mother, Joelma, told local radio: "They killed my son and me too - I would not wish the pain I am suffering today on anybody."
 
Local television said Da Silva had become embroiled in a quarrel with organised groups of opposing fans following a match that drew about 8,000 supporters.
 
The stadium has been closed temporarily pending further inquiries.

Brazil will not be totally ready for the world cup.

 

Most of the stadiums have months of work still, so it will be rushed.

 

They should give up now and let England take it on.

 

We have many new stadiums and great transport links.

 

We got Arsenal and Wembley for London.

 

Middlesboro for Yorkshire.

 

Sunderland and Newcastle for North East.

 

Then Derby and Old Trafford for Manchester area.

 

Southampton for the south, St Mary's.

 

There are other fairly new stadiums capable of hosting.

I definitely agree, but unfortunately it's too late.  The people involved within FIFA need to be fired for how they're managing this event and the upcoming one in Qatar.  There's too much corruption in these events and it's all going to come crashing down eventually.

 

What they should do is have a backup venue with a clause in the contract such that if deadlines aren't met, the event automatically gets taken away and hosted somewhere else.  The UK or US could easily host the World Cup with very minimal work.

true, if any of you guys consider coming here to brazil for world cup, i suggest spending this money in other stuff... it will become dirty money in here and the chances of being killed here are higher than if you jump from an airplane without parachutes at 10.000 feet

Middlesboro is in North Yorkshire.

 

They have a fairly new stadium in the River Side Stadium, rather than the old mental Ayresome Park.

And there's me thinking you wanted to put Hillsborough, and got auto-corrected.

 

And i've never thought of Middlesboro been in Yorkshire - so I learnt something today.
