The 2014 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup championship match is Sunday, July 13, at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. In this Landsat 7 image, acquired on June 26, 2014, the green forested mountains contrast the gray urban area of Rio de Janeiro. Rio’s popular beaches that line the coast are visible as tan strips. The stadium where the action takes place on Sunday is visible as a white circle.­
