British popstar Robbie Williams said that he's feeling the pressure when it comes to the World Cup opening ceremony in Moscow on Wednesday. Williams said the image of American singer Diana Ross's epic fail at the 1994 World Cup occurred to him during the rehearsal. But he said he needs «nerves to get me through what I am about to do. It's curse and blessing.» Ross famously failed to score in... Еще an open goal for a couple of yards out. Williams also expressed his excitement to be allowed to be in Russia. «Russia is kind of a mythical place that we all grew up with. But it seems to exist in a different time zone, a different dimension,» he added. Williams will perform alongside Russian soprano Aida Garifullina at the opening ceremony of the World Cup on Thursday.
