LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A rising soccer star for the United States Men's National team will be available to meet with fans in Louisville on Monday.

Brek Shea, who famously scored the winning goal for the U.S. in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup against Panama, will meet fans between 4 and 4:30 p.m. at Louisville Slugger Field.

Shea plays for Major League Soccer's Orlando City SC, who will have an open training session at Slugger Field at 3 p.m.

"We are thrilled to have Brek Shea in Louisville and available for our fans to meet" said Louisville City general manager Amanda Duffy.  "With tremendous success in Major League Soccer and at the international level, our fans have the unique opportunity of meeting a world-class talent at Slugger Field on Monday afternoon.  

Before joining Orlando City, Shea played for Stoke City of the Barclays Premier League in 2013.

Louisville City FC takes on Orlando in a friendly Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Slugger Field.

Brazilian international star Kaka, who joined Orlando City last summer, will not be in Louisville this week. He flew back to Orlando following the team's loss to Toronto FC on Saturday night.
