Ryan Reynolds cries over soccer game

Ryan Reynolds shed tears of joy as soccer team Wrexham AFC secured a vital victory.

The Deadpool actor was overcome as he watched his team earning themselves a promotion to UK football’s League One.

“A few years ago, if you had told me I would be crying tears of joy over a football match taking place in North Wales, you would be @robmcelhenney,” Reynolds shared on Instagram on Saturday 13 April.

The post came after Wrexham defeated Forest Green Rovers 6-0 to earn the team promotion for a second straight season.

“Congrats to @wrexham_afc and to my co-chairman in crime. Double up the town! This is the ride of our lives. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿” Reynolds concluded.

Reynolds and Rob McElhenny became the co-owners of Wrexham AFC after they purchased the club for $2.5 million (£1.3 million) in 2021, intending to turn the franchise back into a successful team after several years in the doldrums.

Wrexham were in the fifth tier of English football.

They were promoted to League Two last year, and this latest promotion bumps them up to the third tier.

In another post shared via Instagram Story, Reynolds wrote, “This is Field of Dreams stuff,” a reference to the iconic 1989 baseball movie starring Kevin Costner.

McElhenny simply wrote via X: “No words.”
