Construction on the already delayed stadium hosting the World Cup opener could be halted because of health and safety concerns for workers.
Brazilian organizers have held test events at two of the problematic World Cup stadiums, including the one hosting the tournament's opening game next month in Sao Paulo.
Brazilian organizers are adding safety features where a worker died in the stadium hosting the World Cup opener, hoping to quickly reverse an order that halted construction in part of the venue.
