During the rollercoaster FA Cup Clash, Ryan Reynolds experiences joy, agony, elation, and devastation as he watches Wrexham narrowly lose to Sheffield United.

Together with Rob McElhenney, he owns Wrexham football club as co-owner.

In addition, Ryan Reynolds demonstrated his devotion to the team on Sunday by attending the FA Cup match between the team and Sheffield United at Wales' Racecourse Ground.

The rollercoaster game, which ended with a 3-3 draw, saw the 46-year-old Deadpool actor go through a wide range of emotions.

Wrexham, leaders in the National League, came close to knocking out Sheffield United and making it to the fifth round of the cup for the first time in 26 years, but the outcome meant that they would have to play again.

The match was a journey for Ryan in the stands from joy to agony and excitement to devastation at the 3 all result.

The first half began with Wrexham trailing 1-0 at halftime. The second half saw two goals, and the actor was thrilled to see a 2-2 score.

While cheering on his team and hoping for a victory, Ryan gave the impression of being overjoyed with the 2-1 lead.

However, the co-owner was left with his head in one hand after Sheffield tied the score at 2-2 in the 65th minute.

Paul Mullin, a forward for Wrexham, scored the game-winning goal in the final four minutes to give Wrexham a 3-2 lead. Ryan was overjoyed as the win was within reach.

John Egan, on the other hand, knocked him off his high horse by scoring for Sheffield in the dying seconds of the game, resulting in an equalizer.

Before the start of the match, the Hollywood star also kindly signed autographs for fans who were waiting.

He shared the following prior to the match, admitting that he enjoys meeting fans: I love arriving early because I get to meet some of the locals and supporters who have been coming to this location for a long time.

The actor made the surprise donation through a GoFundMe account set up by Kayleigh Barton, whose 11-year-old son Keegan plays for FC United of Wrexham's under-12s team.

She initially requested £480 for uniforms for the boys so that they could match "as they work so hard."

Sky News was told by Kayleigh: I was close to crying. I am aware of how significant that sum is to the club and its members. An understatement of happiness.'

She explained to BBC Breakfast: When I logged in, it said Ryan Reynolds, and I said, "Oh my god," shaking so hard I couldn't believe it.

Ryan sent Andrew Ruscoe, the team's founder, a message with the following message: "I donated £600 first, then another £1000." Have fun with the new uniforms!'

The actor had been asked to retweet the fundraising appeal, but Andrew told the local newspaper The Leader that he didn't expect him to donate himself.

The team responded with a video from some of the team's boys and an announcement that the new uniform's sleeves would feature the Deadpool logo as a "mark of appreciation."

Ryan has done this before by helping fans in need, and it's not the first time.

After a player's son was stillborn, he and Rob contributed £10,000 to a fundraiser together.
After the teen had open-heart surgery in July, Ryan also surprised a 13-year-old boy with a video message.

When he and fellow actor Rob bought the poor Welsh soccer team in late 2020, the star of comic book movies like Deadpool and Green Lantern made headlines.
