The opening ceremony of the Russia 2018 Fifa World cup is ongoing and soon the millions of football enthusiasts will begin to pitch their tents with their favourite teams.

In a few minutes, the opening match between the host nation, Russia and Saudi Arabia will kick off.

Earlier, Robbie Williams, who is best known for his hit single “Angels”, sang alongside Russian soprano Aida Garifullina shortly before Russia face Saudi Arabia in the first match of the FIFA World Cup at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.

Williams had said that performing at the FIFA World Cup was “a boyhood dream” and it would be “an unforgettable show”.
