    Brazilians have once again taken to the streets to protest against hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup while poverty remains a major issue in the country.

    Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the Brazilian largest city of Sao Paulo to show their anger against the hosting of the sports event.

    Chanting anti-World Cup slogans outside the Sao Paulo Museum of Modern Art, the protesters carried placards reading, "There's Not Going to Be a World Cup" and "FIFA Go Home."

    They said the money being spent on the international football tournament should be spent on the internal affairs of the country.

    The demonstrators also demanded that the government do more to stop deaths occurring on the newly built stadiums across the Latin American country.
