The performance will take place half an hour before Russian Federation face Saudi Arabia in the tournament's opening match at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.

On social media, users called Russian Federation out for having a "boring" opening ceremony. This will be the first time since 2002 that the World Cup will be held in multiple nations.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has said that the 2018 World Cup opening ceremony will have a different format than previous years.

Williams, who has previously performed at private parties organised by wealthy Russian business people, said he loved coming to Russia.

Casillas, who helped Spain to win the 2010 edition of the World Cup, was accompanied by Russian model Natalia Vodionova and presented the trophy that the winning team will be awarded after the July 15 final, reports Efe news agency.

"Something like this happens, and you pinch yourself", he said.

The host country facing Saudi Arabia in the Group A match on Thursday.

South Africa's opening ceremony focused on Africa's role as the cradle of humankind, but Russia's opening ceremony mostly contained references to soccer.

The Pop singer's performance is surely going to be in the centre stage after series of events occured on social media. Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots football team and the New England Revolution soccer team, is an honorary chairman of the board for the North American World Cup bid.

Former Take That singer Williams, wearing a red and black leopard print suit, then took over proceedings with a rendition of "Let Me Entertain You", before Garifullina was carried out on to the pitch on the back of a "firebird" float.

What time is the World Cup opening ceremony? The official song of the Russia World Cup 2018 will be customarily performed ahead of the kick off fixture.

Original Ronaldo was there, too, to complete the 90s throwback vibes, and supporting Robbie at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium was Russian soprano Aida Garifullina - along with hundreds of dancers, gymnasts and trampolinists.
