STORYLINE:

Brazilian police dispersed subway workers early on Monday in a central commuter station, with union officials threatening to maintain a work stoppage through the opening match of the World Cup in the city this week.

Authorities are deeply worried about the strike as the subway is the main means of transportation for Cup fans who will attend this Thursday's opening match when Brazil takes on Croatia.

The stadium is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) east of central Sao Paulo, where most tourists stay.
