Ryan Reynolds sent a message of good luck to Wales ahead of their World Cup opener.

,

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has sent his best wishes to Wales’ World Cup squad.

Reynolds, co-owner of non-league Wrexham, gave the message to Wales Online in a video ahead of Monday evening’s World Cup opener against the United States – their first game in the finals since 1958.

“Hey, it’s Ryan Reynolds,” said the 46-year-old Canadian, best known for portraying the superhero anti-hero Deadpool based on the Marvel Comics character.

“I just wanted to send my best wishes to the entire Welsh Football Club as they travel to Qatar to take part in the World Cup.

“I’m currently sitting here with my best friend and co-pilot at Wrexham AFC, Mr Rob McElhenney.”

Philadelphia-born McElhaney, 45, had divided Wales-USA allegiances ahead of the Group B clash at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium.

He said: “I just want to say ‘good luck’ but not too much luck’.

“I mean, maybe a draw. A draw would be nice. Play your hearts out, though.”

To which Reynolds replied: “I’m very sorry about that. Crush all your enemies, drink the blood of your enemies.

“Rob and I are in the car right now because we’re going to Qatar. Go get them.”

Reynolds and McElhenney – who created and star in the sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – were last week honored by the Welsh Government, the Football Association of Wales and S4C for promoting the country and its language.

The pair, who took full control of National League club Wrexham in February 2021, were presented with the Dragon Award at the Wales to the World event in New York.
