Dr. Jill Biden is leading the U.S. delegation to the Women's World Cup in Vancouver next week.

Joining Biden is former U.S. soccer star Mia Hamm and Cobi Jones, a three-time U.S. Men's World Cup player. Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman and Evan Ryan, assistant secretary of state for educational affairs, round out the delegation.

"Team USA has inspired millions around the globe — especially girls and other young athletes who know that the power of sports can change lives," Dr. Biden said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. "The team is a source of pride and unity, and we can't wait to see them represent the United States on the world stage. Let's cheer the team on and bring the World Cup trophy home."

Hamm is known for helping boost the popularity of women's soccer in the U.S. and was a founding member of the now-defunct Washington, D.C., professional women's team, the Freedom. Jones is a former professional player who is now an analyst for the Los Angeles Galaxy on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.

The U.S. faces Japan in the final game Sunday evening.

There was no word yet as to whether President Obama is jealous that Biden gets to go to another World Cup game while he remains in Washington. During a joint appearance Tuesday with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Obama said he was disappointed that he didn't get to go to the Men's World Cup in Brazil last year.

The Obamas have visited Brazil and Obama said he is eager to return.

"I want to go back," Obama said. "I didn't get a chance to experience Carnaval. Vice President Biden got to go to the World Cup — not me."

He then joked that he can't publicly wear the Brazilian national jersey that Rousseff gave him during the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro next year.

"As we look ahead to the Olympics next summer … we'll all be rooting for truly great games with Brazil as our host. Dilma did give me a very nice yellow-and-green sweatshirt [that] says 'Brazil' on the back. I can't wear that in public because I have to root for the USA. But at home, at night, it's very comfortable. So who knows, I might slip it on," he joked.

In her remarks, Rousseff joked back that if the president returns to Brazil, it would be socially acceptable for him to don the sweatshirt there. She also invited Obama to the Olympics.

"[M]ay I reiterate my invitation for President Obama to come to Brazil for the 2016 Olympics … And of course, the invitation is extended to the Vice President," she said, riffing on Obama's earlier complaint about missing the Men's World Cup.
