FIFA World Cup 2018 unveils
The FIFA World Cup, the biggest sporting carnival on the planet, kick-started tonight. As Russia gets dressed to host the much-awaited event, fans from all over the world were present there to see their favorite superstars in action.
Brazilian great Ronaldo and British pop star Robbie Williams were present at the opening ceremony. 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.
Unlike previous editions, this year's opening ceremony took place just half hour before the curtain-raiser match, with a stronger focus on musical acts. Some 80 thousand fans were in attendance while millions more watched the live broadcast around the world.
