Branded as the "secret weapon" of the American soccer team, Ferrell gave a hilarious speech, joking that he would be on the field to compete with the players and chanting "USA!" 

"I am so honored to be playing tomorrow," Ferrell said. "I'm not gonna lie to you, I'm not in the best shape. I'm not in soccer shape right now, but I'm gonna try my best and I'm going to live up to the spirit of this American team."
