Only interesting thing about the 2010 game was the commentator screaming that it was a "goal for all of Africa" when South Africa scored the opening goal which if I remember correctly was a cracking finish.

TSHABALALAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Again, this is going to be 0-0, there is no situation where either of these teams score a goal.

Neville's face when they started talking about Love Island.  It was like 'the **** you talking about love island on a football show, we don't do this on sky!' :D:D

Paused the app a few times and it keeps lurching forward when I unpause to catch up with the live feed.  If it does that once the game starts I will be fuming.

Who is this nauseating sycophant they've sent to interview Robbie Williams?  Make Gabby Logan looks like Paxman.

Interesting to see Robbie doing the opening ceremony, he's such a spent force as a entertainer so will be interesting seeing how he copes.

Songs i'd like to see him sing: 
ROCK DJ - yes yes yes yes! 

Candy - yea all right

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! - YES YES YES! 

Never Forget - a boy can dream, right? :)

and 3 Lions - :D would be awesome. 

 

Probably just sing some new crap and Angels :thdn:

I'M EXCITED! I've missed football!

I hope Russia wins.

I don't know why but I think it's going to be a bit more open than a lot of people think. First goal within 20 minutes.

Robbie Williams kicking off the World Cup sounds like something that could have happened in 2002.

Did Russia offer this gig to Craig David or Martine McCutcheon first? :D

Why did they pull a massive Moltres onto the pitch?

This is terrible. 

It's 2018 and they've served up Robbie Williams ffs

Carnage.  Is Williams literally just singing one or two lines from a song and then leaping into a different one?  Or is it the ITV app buffering?  hard to tell.

Hopefully it mauls Robbie Williams and does us all a favour.
