Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has another kind of GOOAAALLL this World Cup.

The mayor is teaming up with the Boston Breakers, the professional women's soccer team, in hopes of bringing residents together for a public watch party of the U.S. World Cup game on Monday at City Hall Plaza.

The U.S. women's soccer team is slated to battle it out against Colombia in the Round of 16 for a spot in the quarterfinals.

The Boston Breakers' own Alyssa Naeher, who is the National Women's Soccer League's goalkeeper of the year, will be at Monday's World Cup match serving as a backup for the U.S. team's goalie, Hope Solo.

Last year, the mayor hosted two men's World Cup viewing parties, which he considered to be "a major success," a statement from the city said.

The party starts at 8 p.m. Monday.
