AUSTIN (KXAN) — As the U.S. Men’s National Team readies to face off against Germany in the World Cup, they have a secret weapon: secret team player Will Ferrell.

At least, that’s what U.S. Soccer’s YouTube video contends, which shows secret weapon Will Ferrell and “national hero Teddy Goalsevelt” teaming up to inspire the crowd after crashing fan headquarters in Recife, Brazil.

Ferrell didn’t take the stage without referencing the bite scandal that landed Uruguayan soccer star Luis Suarez in hot water on Tuesday.

While Ferrell says he’s not in soccer shape, he did say he would try his best and live up to the spirit of the American team.

And with the thousands of USA fans heading to the stadium for Thursday’s game, just how will you know where Ferrell is in the stadium?

Well, he says to look for the guy sitting next to Goalsevelt — in the red, white and blue bikini top.
