Williams said he was "happy and excited" about the "unique performance" in front of 80,000 fans and many millions all over the world and that it was a boyhood dream.

In 1994 World Cup hosted by the US, Saudi Arabia reached round 16.

The World Cup kicks-off in Russian Federation on June 14, and the usual suspects are among the nations most fancied to lift the famous trophy aloft in Moscow.

Smith will be performing the World Cup's anthem alongside Kosovan singer Era Istrefi and Nicky Jam.

The striker, broke the previous record in the 2014 tournament, featured in four World Cups and won the Golden Boot award in the 2006 edition. One thing will remain the same, however: the underlying theme of celebrating not only football but also the host country, this time with a touching performance by one of Russia's most acclaimed young voices, Aida Garifullina.

A prolific player in great goalscoring form with tremendous footballing ability, the 24-year-old Spurs' striker could be a menace to deal with in the World Cup.

"I never imagined I would be part of this huge celebration, the World Cup, happening in my own country", the soloist from the Vienna State Opera said.

"And, on July 15, we will find out for whom this precious dream will come true, back on the same stage, after a month-long festival of football in Russian Federation".

Wearing a bright yellow two-piece suit and carrying a World Cup trophy, Mohamed spent Tuesday visiting close to two dozen businesses in Edmonton to offer up metres and metres of national flag-emblazoned bunting and sharing his love of the sport.

The "Angels" icon will perform to a crowd of 80,000 people at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday, shortly before the opening game between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

Premier League winter break confirmed
