5:58 am on 12 June 2014

FIFA says pop superstar Jennifer Lopez will perform at the football World Cup opening ceremony after all, two days after it announced "production issues" would prevent her travelling to Brazil.

Lopez, who recorded the official World Cup song, "We Are One," with rapper Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, will perform it with them and Brazilian drumming collective Olodum as originally planned at tomorrow's opening of the tournament.

More than 60,000 people will be in Sao Paulo's Corinthians Arena to watch the ceremony and kick-off match between Brazil and Croatia.

Around a billion people are expected to tune in on TV worldwide.
