Era Istrefi, Nicky Jam and Will Smith will perform the official World Cup song ‘Live It Up’ before Sunday’s World Cup final in Moscow today.
Kosovan pop star Istrefi said she most enjoyed the “two Albanians who scored for Switzerland against Serbia”, a reference to Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, who were later fined by FIFA for their ‘Albanian eagle’ goal celebrations.
FIFA has said the closing ceremony and final are expected to attract a global television audience of more than one billion people.
