British pop star Robbie Williams would happily trade his upcoming world tour for the opportunity to play in the FIFA World Cup, which gets underway in Germany this evening (08JUN06). The ANGELS singer recently captained a celebrity-pro England team against the Rest Of The World in a Soccer Aid match to raise money for Unicef. And he insists the sport is still his first love: "I'd rather be at the football. If I could choose I'd play football for the masses rather than be a musician, no two ways about it. "The World Cup is the ultimate stage, after all."
