Construction Workers To Join Brazil Greats In First Game At MaracanĂ£ Stadium

Construction workers who helped rebuild Brazil's Maracanã stadium "will play in the first match to be staged there later this month," according to Mike Collett of REUTERS. The first match there is a test game on April 27 when construction workers will join "a team representing two of Brazil's greats" -- Ronaldo and Bebeto. Rio de Janeiro Secretary of State for Sport Andre Lazaroni said, "It is our way of saying thank you to the workers" (REUTERS, 4/11).
