No 'Party Like A Russian' for Robbie Williams

Ronaldo has won the World Cup twice with Brazil

The opening ceremony is held in Luzhniki Stadium, which will also host the final, according to Telegraph.

Smith is performing the World Cup's anthem song "Live It Up", alongside Kosovan singer Era Istrefi and Nicky Jam. Robbie Williams is the headlining performer.

They will be joined by Brazil's two-time World Cup victor Ronaldo at Thursday's show, which will be held just 30 minutes before the kick-off to the first match between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

There are two top options to watch World Cup soccer online live streaming without cable.

"The margin of victory was a surprise but the USA made a good bid and they looked to work harder in the hotel lobbies, we didn't see much of Morocco", added Dutch Football Association president Michael van Praag, who voted for the north Africans.

The 44-year-old opened with his 1998 single "Let Me Entertain You" at the start of proceedings after spending time on stage with former Brazil striker Ronaldo.


Although opening ceremonies can sometimes be long and drawn out-see World Cup 1994 in the United States-hosts Russian Federation proved there is a way to begin festivities swiftly.

Robbie Williams got the ball rolling and the crowd pumping at the World Cup with a traditional glitzy opening ceremony in Moscow, though he couldn't avoid a bit of controversy. The bid book lists Arrowhead's total capacity as 76,640, but about 7,500 of those seats would be used for VIPs and media, leaving the stadium's capacity at just over 69,000 for the World Cup. The pair sang the pop star's worldwide hit "Angels".

Many were left surprised when Federation Internationale de Football Association announced they had lined up the former Take That member to perform at the opening ceremony.

Operatic singer Aida Garifullina then outdid everyone by arriving on a huge mechanical phoenix, before duetting with Robbie on "Angels". Sony is official mobile and Internet broadcaster for streaming all FIFA World Cup 2018 and it will bring all the exclusives from the football for the users.

Twitterati was left divided over the quality of the opening ceremony.
