Ryan Reynolds recalls ‘humiliating moment’ while watching Wrexham play at Wembley alongside David Beckham

Ryan Reynolds bought the Welsh National League team Wrexham FC in 2021.

Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds has revealed he was left red-faced while watching his beloved Wrexham play at Wembley alongside David Beckham.

Reynolds spoke about the “humiliating” moment he celebrated an offside goal during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live with guest host and his footballing business partner Rob McElhenney.

The Hollywood stars, who bought Wrexham Football Club in February 2021, attended the FA Trophy Final between their club and Bromley in May.

They sat in the royal box at Wembley Stadium alongside celebrities including David Beckham and Will Ferrel.

The Welsh team were trailing after Michael Cheek’s opener and thought they had found a way back into the game when Jack Hyde scored a close-range header in Stoppage time, but the result was an offside decision.

Reynolds and McElhenney jumped out of their seats but were the only ones celebrating even after the referee chalked the goal as offside.

“Someone needs to explain the offside rule to the A-listers,” joked the BT Sports commentator.

Beckham could be seen chatting to the pair and explaining what had happened on the pitch.

McElhenney recalled the moment he turned to Beckham and saw him shaking his head in dismay.

“We were cheering, and we looked over at Beckham, and he was just shaking his head like this.”

Reynolds added: “How humiliating . . . in fairness, nobody understands the offside rule.”

A documentary series following Wrexham’s time under Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney is due to be released soon.
