As they have never made it past the round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup, they will be desperate to change their fortunes and give their fans something to cheer about.

As well as the relative strength of both teams involved, less importance will be given to friendly games when determining the rankings, while more will be given to the major tournaments.

Read on for a look at what to know ahead of the opening ceremony.

The former Take That frontman, best known for the hits Angels and RockDJ, will perform a special duet with Russian soprano Aida Garifullina before the host nation's opening match with Saudi Arabia in Group A.

The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) have appointed Argentine referee Nestor Pitana to officiate the opening game of this year's FIFA World Cup between hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia on Thursday in Moscow.

Rubiales insists the situation is "very complicated" but believes the coaching staff will "do everything in their power" to help Spain succeed at the World Cup. In the 1990s, Williams was a part of the pop group "Take That".

However, any positive impact on the Russian economy from the World Cup is likely to be short-lived, according to credit rating agency Moody's, which analyzes the event's influence every four years.

Additionally, Russian soprano Aida Garifullina will perform alongside Williams while Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo - a two time World Cup champion - is also present during the opening ceremony, according to Federation Internationale de Football Association. That avoids a potentially embarrassing meeting with his successor Gianni Infantino, German news agency DPA reported.
