Wrexham, the football team that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney co-own, came within striking distance of defeating Sheffield United, a team from the English Football League Championship. However, John Egan’s corner kick goal in the 95th minute resulted in a draw, necessitating a replay.
Both teams had an exciting second half, with goals from Thomas O’Connor and Paul Mullin giving Wrexham two-goal leads. Oliver Norwood and Egan quickly scored goals to bring Sheffield United back into the game after the Welsh club’s efforts were briefly derailed by Daniel Jebbison’s suspension.
Wrexham Surprised The Football Pundits
“To concede from one of the last kicks of the game from a set play is gutting,” the striker for Wrex ham, Paul Mullin, said after the game. He went on to say that throughout the match, he thought Wrex ham was the better team because they were better at making chances and looked dangerous on the break.
As he watched the FA Cup match, Ryan Reynolds, who was there with one of his daughters, experienced a roller coaster of emotions. Wrexham will now have to travel to Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane for a replay rather than advance to the fifth round.
