The World Cup kicks off this Thursday, June 12, 2014, and unleashes the world’s biggest sporting event. You can celebrate right along with Pokemon, the official mascot for the 2014 Japan National Football Team. But you won’t see J-Lo. She couldn’t make it, even though she was scheduled to perform at the Opening Ceremony. Oops. Some production issues got in the way.
But you can still enjoy the games and enjoy the song, on a loop for the next month: “We Are One (Ole Ola)” with rapper Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, is the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Song and part of your summer soundtrack.
The 20th Fifa World Cup heads to Brazil from June 12 thru July 13, 2014. Brazil, the five-time champions are favorites to win yet again, with Spain and Germany strong competitors.
