Among the other artists on Sunday were Ozuna and Gims who sang “Arhbo”, with Nora Fatehi, Balqees, Rahma Riad and Manal performing “Light the Sky”.

There was a lot of controversy surrounding the World Cup that took place in Qatar, but the game on the pitch created many memorable moments for players and fans.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino so this event was “the best World Cup ever.”

It creates a lot to live up to in 2026 when the USA, Mexico and Canada host a 48-team tournament.
