Cam Newton appears in World Cup promo video

Cam Newton believes.

In an ESPN commercial for the World Cup, the Carolina Panthers quarterback is among several celebrities joining in the famous chant “I believe that we will win.”

The chant has become synonymous with the United States men’s national soccer team, which plays its first World Cup match against Ghana on Monday. The American Outlaws, the group at the end of the video, is known as the raucous group of fans that support the U.S. team.

Along with Newton, actor Jon Hamm, actress Whoopi Goldberg, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, rapper and actor Ice Cube, Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and former NFL running back Barry Sanders join in the chant in the 45-second video that was published on ESPN’s official YouTube channel Tuesday.

Newton hasn’t really proclaimed any love for soccer in his time with the Panthers, but he’s shown his American pride by wearing socks with stars and stripes on them during practices.

Realistically, we can get out of the group stage if we beat Ghana next Monday... and get a draw against Portugal. That's real.
