Begins The 2018 FIFA World Cup With A Short Yet Beautiful Opening Ceremony. FIFA -2018
It was the start of a month-long journey of happiness, an end to a 4-year-long wait for billions of football fans across the globe.
Fans streamed past the statue of Lenin to make their way into the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, the venue for the opening ceremony of 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The stage was set with fans eagerly waiting for the 30-minute starter before the main action between Russia and Saudi Arabia kicked-off.
It all began with a group of performers beautifully dressed up to depict the passion of football, followed by a bunch of Acrobats and Jugglers wooing the crowd.
The stage was set ablaze when Robbie Williams took to the pitch with “Let Me Entertain You” to put out the Russian Football Union’s intentions at the tournament.
He was joined by Russian soprano, Aida Garifullina, who entered the pitch on a giant bird. The duo kept churning out hits one after the other to entertain the full house crowd.
Brazilian legend, Ronaldo Nazario, then stepped up along with the official mascot for the tournament, Zibravka.
It was then time for the real action to begin. Russia won the game 5-0 to round off a perfect start to the mega event.
