Pelé Scolds Brazil on World Cup Spending "The Brazilian legend Pelé criticized his country’s organization of the World Cup, saying that billions of dollars have been spent unwisely. Speaking in Mexico City, Pelé said he sided with those protesting against the big spending, but he also lamented violence. Brazil is spending about $11 billion over all on the World Cup, and $4 billion on 12 new and refurbished stadiums. Pelé said: “Some of this money could have been invested in schools, in hospitals. Brazil needs it.”"
