The World Cup trophy is on American soil this week, making the rounds as part of its eight-month-long pre-tournament tour.
With this summer's World Cup just 57 days from kickoff, the trophy is on its last leg of a tour which has already seen it visit Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.
On Monday, US Vice President Joe Biden and US Secretary of State John Kerry took their turn seeing World Cup trophy at an event in Washington. They were also joined by US Soccer legends Cobi Jones and Julie Foudy.

The trophy will remain Stateside for the rest of this week, making stops in the following cities on the following days:
Miami: Tuesday and Wednesday
Los Angeles: Saturday and Sunday
If you live in one of the above cities and have the opportunity to get out and see the World Cup trophy this week, you should do so. It might be your last chance to see it before Clint Dempsey and Jurgen Klinsmann lift it on July 13.
