SPARTANBURG, S.C - With Brazil 2014’s Opening Match only a day away, this years host country is getting ready with last minute preparations as teams from all over the world come to practice and begin training. 

Brazil has put more than $11 billion into making the World Cup a success and the 32 teams will be competing across 12 different cities.
Crews in Sao Paulo were still working this week to get the city's World Cup stadium ready in time to host Thursday's opening match between Brazil and Croatia. 

After the disappointment of hearing that the singer was not going to appear at the Opening Ceremony, now Jennifer Lopez will be performing at the World Cup before the Brazil vs. Croatia match, contrary to reports earlier this week that she had pulled out due to unspecified “production issues”.

The singer will take the to the stage in Sao Paulo to sing the official World Cup song “We Are One (Ole Ola)” alongside Pitbull and Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte at the opening ceremony.
