“I haven’t picked a team for Saturday. I know a bit about football, saw the Swans semi final and thought it was an amazing advert for the sport.

“I really discovered the World Cup and that was pretty scary. That was a big deal. It’s Australia, so I’ll take it easy. I love the MCG, it’s an honor to be a part of it, an honor to play it.

“The rest of the world deserves to know about this sport because it’s easy to get addicted.”

“You are the greatest performer in the world and we are the greatest game. We’ve got to do something together,” Rodgers told the star backstage after An Evening With Robbie at the Rod Laver Arena in May, The Herald Sun reported.

This started a discussion that led to the pop star finally accepting the job.

Robbie confirmed the good news about his upcoming performance in July.

“I’m so excited to play in front of all the fans, on the lit-up grass of the MCG, for the biggest game of the year,” he said in a statement.

“Can’t wait to see you on the last Saturday in September,” added the Let Me Entertain You hitmaker.
