Aaron Ramsdale calls out Will Ferrell in amusing ‘feud’ ahead of England v USA

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale calls out actor Will Ferrell in a rather amusing ‘feud’ ahead of England v USA on Friday night.

Ferrell was appearing on Capital FM, when the show’s host Roman Kemp played a voice recording from the England international who as we all know loves a cheeky wind up. It’s what makes us love him even more.

He told the American actor though he ‘loves watching his films’, ‘when that whistle goes, you’ll be the worst actor in the world’, joking that ‘Elf will be on the shelf, and it will be a little less Anchorman and more w*****man’

But Will Ferrell was ready and had took to give some war of words back to Ramsdale, leaving those in the studio in stitches.

‘Wow. Mr. Aaron Ramsdale,’ he said.

‘Aaron you didn’t realize when you gave those quotes, Aaron you didn’t realize, I know where you live.’

‘And I’m delivering a bag of s*** to your doorstep. I’m going to light it on fire and you’re going to have to stomp it out, you’re going to have s*** all over your football boots. Alright Aaron?!’

The ‘beef’ started after Ferrell was asked for his prediction on Friday’s game, responding: ‘USA three, England nil,’ before suggesting the match would be a ‘slaughter’ on the Three Lions.

Asked by Roman Kemp if any Gareth Southgate’s players should be worried ahead of the match, he replied back: ‘They aren’t going to sleep at night. Because they are insomniacs.’

In 2016, Ferrell became a part-owner of Los Angeles FC, a team that competes in the MLS.

When asked about why he became a co-owner Ferrell said “I don’t really have a side per se until LAFC get started and that will definitely be, obviously, my team. But I just enough watching the fact that it’s played all over the world. So many amazing players and so many top flight leagues. And hopefully MLS can be on par, eventually, with the European leagues.”

England, fresh from their win in the 2022 World Cup opening fixture, will be looking to increase their chances of winning Group B on Friday night when they face the USA at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor.

The Three Lions launched their campaign on Monday by striking Iran for six, while the Stars and Stripes had to share the spoils in their first clash with Wales.

After reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup four years ago, and then the finals of Euro 2020 in 2020, Gareth Southgate’s team had lost their optimism heading to Qatar. This was after a disappointing UEFA Nations League campaign.

The nation’s hopes were lifted when the Three Lions triumphantly beat Iran 6-2 in their first group match. This was their largest-ever win in a major tournament.

Bukayo Saka scored on either side of strikes by Jude Bellingham or Raheem Sterling, in a dominant first half performance. Substitutes Marcus Rashford (pictured below) and Jack Grealish were added to the scoresheet following the break.

Southgate saw many positives in his team’s performance during a contest that saw almost half an hour of stoppage between the two halves. However, he was “fed up” after Porto’s Mehdi Taremi scored two consolation goals against Iran. The England boss has asked his players to focus on the USA against Friday’s “full-throttle”.

England will be looking to win their first two group matches at World Cup after claiming maximum points against Iran. They have previously won this four times in 1982, 2006, and 2018.

Southgate and his team cruised to a 6-1 win against Panama at the last World Cup. Panama finished behind USA in CONCACAF qualifying.

England has won eight of the 11 meetings with USA in all competitions. They scored 39 goals and have now moved one step closer towards the last 16.

Nine minutes before the break, Timothy Weah gave the Stars and Stripes a lead. But as Gregg Berhalter’s team lost their spark, Wales responded and scored a crucial equaliser in the 82nd minute from the penalty spot. This was after Walker Zimmerman had clumsily moved the LAFC forward within the area.

Berhalter was criticized back in America, but the 49 year-old, who played briefly for Crystal Palace in his playing days, believes that his team “left nothing out there” and is hopeful of making it to the knockout rounds. USA made it to the World Cup finals in their two previous World Cup finals. They finished second behind Portugal in 2014 and then took first place ahead of England in 2010.

In fact, the Americans finished above Fabio Capello’s men in goal difference with a memorable 1-1 draw against the Three Lions.

USA enter Friday’s World Cup match unbeaten in the previous two meetings with England. This includes a shocking 1-0 group stage triumph in 1950. Similar heroics will be required if USA are to win at least one point at Al Bayt Stadium.
