Will Ferrell Wished the Swedish Euro Team Good Luck

Sweden’s Euro Cup squad had a big matchup against the Ukraine on Tuesday, so they decided to bring in the big guns. It probably has to do with the fact his wife, Viveca Paulin, is a native of the country, and you know Will delivered the goods. Ferrell wished the team luck before telling the players, “you are so smart, you are so strong, you are so fast, you play fabulously good” before chanting “we are all Sweden fans,” according to Bakersfield.com.

Unfortunately  the former SNL Funnyman’s speech wasn’t enough to help will Sweden to victory.

Ukraine scored a goal in extra time.

But it was worth a shot.
