World Cup Match Played 750 Meters From Rio Favela...RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - JUNE 25:  A resident shaves using a car window as a mirror amongst cars parked by World Cup tourists for a fee in the Metro Mangueira favela, located 750 meters from Maracana stadium, where Ecuador and France played today, on June 25, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Tourists were parking in an area where homes once stood. The favela has seen many homes levelled ahead of the World Cup. The homes were thought to have been knocked down for a proper parking lot for the stadium, though that has yet to be built. The area has seen some people occupy certain dwellings. Evictions and demolitions have been occurring in Rio favelas ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Rio 2016 Olympic Games in spite of a housing shortage in the city. Rio's housing and urban planning goals include a planned five percent reduction of areas occupied by favelas by 2016. Alternative affordable housing, generally on the peripheries of the city, is unable to meet demand and some residents complain they have not received adequate compensation for demolished homes.
