The Free Guy star admitted watching his team play had become incredibly tense, telling the BBC ahead of the match: "I’m now so much in love with this sport that I actually hate it. Each match I’m pacing around like a caged lion.”
His wife Blake Lively joked on social media: “I bought espn+ today. Just to watch my husband experience crippling anxiety live. Worth it.”
She later added: “If you’re not watching this insane [Wrexham] game right now you’re missing out on these vibes, They’re playing a team 3 leagues higher. And currently winning. Life makes no sense.”
The draw comes after Wrexham AFC's three victory's in the latest FA Cup tournament, against Oldham, Farnborough and Coventry City.
They will now play Sheffield United in a rematch on Tuesday, 7 February, to decide which team goes through to the fifth round of the FA Cup 20/23.
