World Cup: US national soccer team to wear inspirational fan message vs. Portugal

It must be cool to be Joel Humowiecki today. 

On Sunday the US national team takes the field for a critical Group of Death match-up against Portugal and on their hearts they will have Joel's own personal message to the players.

"The American will to win is stronger than any opponent in your way."

The US Soccer Federation has been inviting fans to share messages via social media and they've been published in all sorts of places you wouldn't expect during this World Cup run: training camp fields, locker room walls, game balls and luggage tags.

But the prime real estate? That belongs to Joel.
