Shakira is set to perform as part of the World Cup final.

The Colombian pop-star will headline the pre-match entertainment on July 13 at the Maracanã stadium.

She will sing La la la (Brazil 2014) with Brazilian singer Carlinhos Brown.

Also on the bill is guitar virtuoso Santana who will team up with Wyclef and Alexandre Pires to perform the tournament’s official anthem Dar Um Jeito.

“I’m thrilled to be performing my song ‘La la la (Brazil 2014)’ at the 2014 Fifa World Cup closing ceremony,” Shakira said.

“I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people, myself included.”
