Aaron Ramsdale has hilariously called out actor Will Ferrell ahead of England’s clash with USA, labelling him ‘w**ker man’.

Ferrell is a huge football fan due to his involvement with MLS side LAFC, with the comedic actor currently in London promoting his new Christmas film, Spirited.
Renowned as one of Hollywood’s top comedians for his role in Anchorman and Elf among others, he found himself embroiled in a light-hearted war of words with Ramsdale who threatened to put ‘Elf on the shelf’.
Addressing Ferrell on Capital Radio, Ramsdale said: “Hi Will, it’s Aaron Ramsdale.
“You’re a great actor and a hero of mine, I love watching your films.
“But, when we play your nation on Friday, you’ll be the worst actor in the world.
“Elf will be on the shelf and it will be a little less Anchorman and more w**ker man. Take care pal.”
