So, there's this World Cup soccer game ... and it's kind of a big deal. Enter Will Ferrell.
Donning a red, white and blue Team USA uniform and standing next to soccer fan and Twitter sensation Teddy Goalsevelt, portrayed by Mike D'Amico, the 46-year-old Anchorman actor gave a truly inspirational speech to a screaming crowd at a bar in Recife, Brazil on Wednesday, as seen in a United States Soccer Federation video. The 2014 FIFA World Cup began in the country on June 12 and on Thursday, June 26, Team USA faces off against Germany.
"USA!" "USA!" "USA!" the patrons shouted.
"I'm so honored to be playing tomorrow," Ferrell joked, after being announced as a mock replacement Team USA player. "I'm not going to lie to you–I'm not in the best shape ... But I'm gonna try my best."
