Robbie's World Cup priority
16:30 13 January 2006
Robbie Williams has organised his European tour around the World Cup because he is so obsessed with football.
The pop heartthrob is so desperate not to miss the key matches of the tournament he has scheduled concerts around them.
The star is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "I love football!
"She's my wife and my mistress. She has never let me down."
Last year, the singer was so determined to improve his football skills he enlisted the help of England captain David Beckham.
The star was said to have approached David backstage at the Live 8 charity concert to ask him to teach him some of his skills.
One of Beckham's friends said at the time: "David invited Robbie to Spain, where he's promised to give him a tour of his club, Real Madrid's training ground, as well as teaching him a few skills."
The source added: "Robbie's good at football but he's keen to learn more."
