More than 52,000 fans cheer on the United States team during Saturday night's international friendly soccer match.

NATAL, BRAZIL - It's not a bad way to start your work week with Team USA gearing up for its opening match in the 2014 FIFA World Cup against Ghana.

"For one month every four years, the world stops, everybody is watching," said team captain Michael Bradley. "To have the opportunity to represent our country, to wear our colors, there's nothing else like it."

This is a chance at redemption for Team USA. Ghana knocked the U.S. out of competition in each of the past two World Cups.

Monday's match is set for 6 PM. The Jacksonville Armada will host a World Cup watch party at the Jacksonville Landing from 5 PM to 8:30 PM.
