Ryan Reynolds applauds goalkeeper Oliver Byrne
As we all know, football is a very competitive sport where not just the players but even the fans are equally involved. And the sport of competitiveness only increases when you are the owner of the team. However, irrespective of what the result is, the spirit of the game should be maintained. That is what exactly Reynolds proved after his team Wrexham A.F.C. lost after a penalty shootout with Altrincham Football club. Sadly, along with the loss, Wrexham’s journey in the tournament also came to an end.

However, despite the fact that his team was eliminated from the tournament, Reynolds took to Twitter to appreciate Oliver Byrne. Byrne had an excellent game after the keeper led his team to victory with outstanding saves during the penalty shootout.
In response to Altrincham F.C’s tweet applauding Byrne for his performance, the Spirited star wrote, “Incredible save.” It was incredible to witness such a positive gesture by Reynolds.
However, Wrexham A.F.C. put on a show for their fans. Wrexham’s striker Jacob Bikerstaff scored a brace and almost led his team to victory. Meanwhile, Altrincham F.C. made an incredible comeback as Zak Goodson equalized the score in the dying moments.
Meanwhile, Reynolds and McElhenney even made it to the popular game FIFA 23 in a hidden Easter egg. On the work front, Reynolds is all set to narrate the animal series “Underdogs” for National Geography. Furthermore, the Canadian star is also busy filming for his much-anticipated project Deadpool 3.
