  • Robbie Williams shows 'middle finger' during World Cup performance

On 14 June, just a few moments before Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia kick off the 2018 FIFA World Cup, three worldwide stars will thrill the fans in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. There was a amusing moment as Ronaldo tried to pass the ball to the mascot in ceremonial "first kick".

Either way, Robbie Williams has given the world another hit that we're all talking about, so we can at least take solace in that.

Official FIFA ambassador - and former Miss Russia - Victoria Lopyreva then emerged with the official match ball for the World Cup opener, while former Brazil star Ronaldo was accompanied by official mascot Zabivaka. Robbie's performance went off without a hitch, while Wizkid sat on his sheepskin sofa awaiting the opening fixture of his home nation, the Nigeria Super Eagles.

The opening ceremony of FIFA World Cup 2018 saw the cheekiest moments when British popstar did the unthinkable.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has said that the 2018 World Cup opening ceremony will have a different format than previous years. The event kicks off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday, June 14, at 5:30 p.m. local time (10:30 a.m. ET).

Instead, many viewers spent the opening minutes of ITV's World Cup coverage simply admiring their fancy Red Square studio. Garifullina guhed to Federation Internationale de Football Association that, "I never imagined I would be part of this huge celebration, the World Cup, happening in my own country".

As the stage was cleaned and wrapped, the Russian President, Vladimir Putin came up for a speech which really appreciated by the crowd too.

Putin said "Russians love football" and for them it had been "love at first ever since the first official game in 1897".

Garifullina left the field and Williams delivered a spirited performance of "Rock DJ - Can I Kick It", along the side lines, so that the field could be cleared to make way for the big game.

# Williams and Garifullina performed a duet of Williams hit single "Angels".

"As of today, for one month football will conquer Russian Federation and from Russian Federation football will conquer the whole world - enjoy the biggest celebration on earth", he said.
