SAO PAULO (AP) — At least four World Cup fans have had a letdown even before getting to the stadium.

Brazilian officials say a rain-soaked street collapsed under two cars in the World Cup host city of Natal.

Lt. Jailton Cunha of the fire department says four Brazilian fans were in one of the cars, which had just parked. They had come to Natal to watch Japan play against Greece on Thursday. None of the fans was hurt, though the car was partly buried by collapsing dirt after falling into the hole. The other car was empty.
