Fireworks, Putin at 2018 Fifa World Cup opening ceremony

Twitter users were left stunned by Williams' antics with some blasting him for a 'lack of morals' and calling him 'desperate for attention'

Meanwhile back on the pitch, the opening match saw home nation Russian Federation take on Saudi Arabia.

Edson Arantes do Nascimento, the football legend - who won the Jules Rimet Cup, used as the World Cup trophy from 1930-1970, three times - is one of the main guests invited at the opening ceremony in Luzhniki Stadium.

Williams has been quite active on the football front lately as he was seen gracing the hallowed grounds of Old Trafford for the Soccer Aid for Unicef Match on the weekend.

Ronaldo scored both goals as Brazil beat Germany to win the 2002 World Cup.

Around 500 dancers, gymnasts and trampolinists will also be performing in an opening extravaganza that will pay homage to all things Russian.

During the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony, the former Take That singer made a decision to give the "one finger salute" to the entire world!

British pop star Robbie Williams (above) has said the song is not about Russian leader Vladimir Putin, but he will still not perform Party Like A Russian at the World Cup opening ceremony today. "Football is truly loved here and it is called love at first sight, since our first official match here in 1897", Putin said.

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

The Fan Fest zone in Moscow is one of 11 sites in each of the World Cup host cities, all of which will be free to enter.

It turns out that Robbie Williams has sparked outrage after appearing to give the finger to the camera during a performance at the World Cup opening ceremony.

Global music icon Robbie Williams will entertain the stadium crowd and the millions watching around the world, with celebrated Russian soprano Aida Garifullina joining him during the musical extravaganza.

Instead, many viewers spent the opening minutes of ITV's World Cup coverage simply admiring their fancy Red Square studio.

Williams was then joined on the set by Russian opera singer Aida Garifullina, who arrived on the back of a giant fiery eagle.

The next 32 days are going to be one hell of a ride.
