The Holy Mountain singer has revealed who he thinks will win the international tournament, which kicks off today at 4pm.

Noel Gallagher has revealed who he's backing to win The FIFA World Cup 2018, which starts with a match between Russia and Saudi Arabia from at 4pm today (14 June).

The Oasis songsmith is a huge football fan, particularly when it comes to his beloved Man City.

So when asked by Radio X's Gordon Smart where his loyalties will lie when it comes to the international tournament this year considering so many of his favourite players aren't from the UK, he revealed he'd be supporting Belgium.

"I'm gonna put a Belgium flag over the life-sized cardboard cut out of Matthew McConaughey which sits on our front room window," said the Holy Mountain singer.

He added: "I think I'm going to go for Belgium".

After the interview last month, Gallagher went on to play a special one-off gig with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds at the Watford Colosseum on Monday (14 May), in aid of Global's Make Some Noise Charity.

Playing a career-spanning setlist, which included Oasis favourites and tracks from throughout his solo career, Gallagher and his band opened with his triumphant Who Built The Moon? opener Fort Knox, before launching into its lead single Holy Mountain.
