World Cup fever is heating up with the first game's kick-off happening in less than 2 weeks. It's not just Brazil that's getting all excited for the world's largest soccer tournament - McDonalds is getting into the excitement with some really special burgers that are worldly in their own sense.

The Golden Arches is celebrating the world's most popular sport by creating a few new menu items with an international sport flair. Each new burger will be named after a country and feature some ingredients and flavors of that country all served up between a bun that looks like a soccer ball. All of the 800 restaurants in the host country will sell sandwiches "from" Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and U.S.A., and the fun isn't limited to Brazil since new snacks can be found on the menus in Japan and Australia.

Each day of the week, Brazil restaurants will offer a new international sandwich with Brazil kicking things off and the U.S. rounding out the final whistle. The hometown favorite, McBrazil, offers up Angus beef with mayonnaise, special Brazilian vinaigrette, and emmental cheese and McUSA features Angus beef with barbecue sauce, crispy onions, pickles, lettuce, bacon and cheddar cheese. Naturally, McSpain serves up some spice, McItaly with Parmesan cheese, tomato sauce and pepperoni, and McArgentina is topped with chimichurri mayonnaise.

In Australia, the menu expands to desserts and drinks with an English-inspired fruit and custard pie, an Italian McFlurry and a swirled (and appropriately colored) frozen pineapple and green apple slushie. Restaurants in Japan will also serve a Spanish chorizo breakfast sandwich, German dipping sauces for McNuggets and two flavors of Italian arancini.
