FIFA 'deceiving' Brazilians
Sao Paulo - Romario says FIFA and the Brazilian government are misleading the Brazilian people by saying the nation will host the greatest Soccer World Cup of all time.
The former Brazil star turned congressman says the meeting between FIFA head Sepp Blatter and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff on Friday shouldn't be taken seriously and that Brazil "will be embarrassed" during the month long event in 2014.
Romario said on Sunday that it was a "shame" to hear that FIFA and the federal government are working closely together.
Romario says on his Facebook page on Sunday that the World Cup will represent "the greatest heist in the history of Brazil" because of overspending and the misuse of public funds.
