For every international tournament these days, there’s a slogan that accompanies it and the groups participating. The World Cup this year is no different.

FIFA chose the slogan “All in one rhythm” for Brazil 2014. Per FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke, this slogan was picked because, “it will unite fans in Brazil and abroad, around what will be a colorful and vibrant celebration set to a uniquely Brazilian rhythm.”

This year, the U.S. Men’s National Team will head to Brazil carried by the slogan “United by team, driven by passion.” U.S. Soccer has also been using the hashtag #1N1T, which stands for one nation, one team, in tweets about the World Cup. Past USMNT slogans have included “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of victory!” (2010) and “United we play, united we win,” (2006).
