Will Ferrell is Soccer Aid's Rest of the World' team `secret weapon'

Soccer Aid's Rest of the World squad have been singing the praises of Will Ferrell.

Captain Michael Sheen said the US comic is the team's "secret weapon".

He said in a statement: "It's a real treat to have Will Ferrell playing for us.

"We're all big fans of his work but I don't think people realise he's a real serious competitor.

"Seeing him out there on the pitch today, he knows what he's doing. So I think he might be a secret weapon for us."

Chef Gordon Ramsay said: "Everyone's impressed with Will Ferrell - he's played brilliantly well this morning - looking almost like our Peter Crouch but with a little bit more umph!"
