Workers labour in Maracana Stadium, which is undergoing renovation for the 2014 World Cup, in Rio de Janeiro April 26, 2013. For the first time in two-and-a-half years, a ball will be kicked at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium on Saturday after an almost complete makeover which many fear will cost the spiritual home of Brazilian football its popular appeal. The 900 million reais ($448 million) refurbishment has been dogged by delays, labour disputes and protests and the controversy is set to drag on long after Saturday's exhibition match between teams led by former Brazil forwards Ronaldo and Bebeto.
