American actor Will Ferrell was a surprise guest at a United States fan park in Recife ahead of his nation’s clash with Germany.

Ferrell announced he would make a surprise appearance for the USA in the fixture – despite his poor physical shape – adding that he would “bite every German player” if he had too.

He left the stage to a boisterous chant of ‘I believe that we can win’ from the hoard of supporters.

Watch the video below:

Although the Anchorman star failed to feature in the Group G match, he would have no doubt been pleased that his nation progressed to the knockout stage despite a 1-0 defeat.

The USA will face Belgium in the last 16.
