Bostonians, are you gearing up for the FIFA Women's World Cup final?

The U.S. faces off against Japan Sunday night, and Boston's Tourism Director Ken Brissette is expecting a good turn out at the city's viewing party of the game at City Hall Plaza. The party starts at 7 p.m.

"I think the spirit of the U.S. is out in full force," he told WBUR's newscast unit. "I think there was a record number of people to watch the U.S.-German game, and we'll expect the same record to watch the U.S. women's play Japan on Sunday and get a victory."

The U.S. women's soccer team last won the World Cup in 1999.
