Though the rhythm of the grand opening was cut a bit when English pop star Robbie Williams showed his middle finger to the TV cameras.



The tournament kicks off in earnest with Russia taking on Saudi Arabia at the Luzhniki Stadium, with the hosts harbouring the added pressure of impressing in front of their home fans.




Thousands of revelers packed inside the sold-out stadium to witness the dazzling opening ceremony, with all the bells and whistles which have become synonymous with similar events of World Cups’ past.
