When Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney entered into the picture to buy Wrexham FC, heads turned. For an actor as high profile as Reynolds to have an interest in a football club, which was at that time way past its glory, was something no one expected. But looks like Wrexham FC’s destiny is full of miracles and once again another show-stopping entity has knocked on its door. This time it is the award-winning goalkeeper Ben Foster who has joined the football club through a short-term deal. While one can create a parallel between the entry of Ryan Reynolds and Ben Foster in Wrexham FC, there has already been an intersection.

Ben Foster played his debut Wrexham FC match against York City and Ryan Reynolds showed up to cheer the new asset that Wrexham FC has to its name. And Ben Foster’s reaction to meeting him is nothing short of a fan dream come true.

And Ryan Reynolds, along with Blake Lively and his kids, was among the spectators of this stunning match. Finally, fans got Foster to answer how it was to meet the actor. The keeper revealed his first meeting with Ryan Reynolds took place in the tunnel and that “it does not get much better than that,” referring to the clean slate win.

As soon as Wrexham FC announced that Foster would be joining them, apart from the nitty gritty of his comeback, the biggest question of intrigue was if he had met the Deadpool actor and what he thought of him. Foster even declared himself a fanboy of Ryan Reynolds. Therefore, for fans, this was another win.
