Stephen Doughty, a Labour Member of Parliament on the Home Affairs Committee exploring suspicious deaths of Russians on British soil, claimed it is "surprising and disappointing" that Williams had "agreed to be paid by Russia and FIFA".

The event will be held at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Following the decision of world football body, FIFA, to overhaul its monthly ranking system to make standing more fair and logical, the Super Eagles and many other nations that have won matches against stronger nations are in position to profit in the new order.

While it's not yet been announced what Robbie will sing, a duet with Russian soprano Aida Garifullina has been confirmed.

"The world is seeing that Saudi Arabia's identity is slowly evolving and the World Cup only adds to all the efforts that the world is seeing from Saudi Arabia".
