Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds goes through full range of emotions as his club Wrexham suffers heartbreak at stoppage time vs Sheffield in FA Cup

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds was in attendance for his Welsh club Wrexham as they toppled a lead at the last moment against Sheffield United and the celebrity has been through a roller coaster of emotions throughout the game.

Ryan Reynolds officially became the owner of the Wrexham football club in 2021 after he and Rob McElhenney bought the club’s 100% share and the Deadpool actor is a die-hard football fan for a long time.

Wrexham drew against Championship club Sheffield United in the FA Cup fourth-round match which proved to be a nail-biting contest after the much-anticipated match ended in a 3-3 draw.

Oliver Mcburnie opened the scoring for the Blades inside the two minutes of the game and the Welsh National League table-toppers were behind until the 50th minute as the substitute James Jones brought the equalizer.

The Reynolds-owned side took a lead via O’connor’s goal, but the lead lasted only four minutes after Norwood pulled the goal back for the visitors as the goal fest continued.

However, a red card to the Blades forward Jebbison opened up the possibilities for Wrexham and they capitalized the man advantage to their purpose after Paul Mullin scored in the 86th minute on what looked like a winner for sure.

Ryan Reynolds was seen celebrating and punching in the air with delight, but John Egan cut the celebration short after scoring a dramatic equalizer at the last kick of the game.

The Detective Pikachu star has experienced heartbreak after his side couldn’t take comfort with them even after reducing the opponent to a man short and the Welsh side will play a rematch to decide their fate in Bramall Lane.

At the post-match show, the England and Wrexham forward Paul Mullin expressed his frustration as his side couldn’t hold on to the lead and he thought they were the better side to take the win home.

“Very disappointed. To concede from one of the last kicks of the game from a set-play is gutting. If we just hold on against 10 men, then we are through. I thought we were the better team throughout the game, creating chances and looking dangerous on the break. We limited them to not many chances in open play.”- Mullin told at the post-match press conference.
