However, she is also very keen to see the five-time champions from Samba land and reigning champions Spain in action too.

"I'll be supporting the United States of America as my home country but I would really like to see Brazil and reigning champions Spain play too," Lopez told FIFA journal The Weekly in an interview for their latest edition.

Lopez has teamed up with US rapper Armando Perez, known as Pitbull, and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte to sing the World Cup anthem, We Are One (Ole, Ola) during the quadrennial tournament's opening ceremony on June 12 in Sao Paolo.

The high-energy track is filled with a lot of whistles and Oles and is available for download on itunes. Ask her about her favourite player, and she's quick to respond.

"Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal captain) is one of the best players in the world. I've had the pleasure of meeting him a few times too and he is a genuinely good guy," said the 44-year-old.
