Michael Sheen’s fans are praising the actor’s ‘electric’ rally call in A League of Their Own

Welsh actor Michael Sheen has been praised for a thunderous rally call he made on the panel of the sports quiz programme A league of its own.

That Damn club star was asked to give a motivational speech for Robert Page’s Wales national football team ahead of their World Cup match against England.

Few expected what followed, however, and Sheen completely plunged into the task.

“I hear the voices singing. accelerate your journey, Boisbach [good heavens],” he said. “A nation singing with one voice, a song of hope, a song of courage. A song of victory that floats through the valleys like a red mist, rolls like red thunder over the mountaintops.

“A red storm is coming at the gates of Qatar. It sizzles with the spirit of ’58 and the Jimmy Murphy boys. It turns the pages of the history books and finds Rob’s page waiting to be written. What would you guys do in there? Do you dare to write your names on this page? We didn’t wait 64 years and travel halfway across the world to be harassed by a neighbor back home.”

He continued: “If the English come knocking on our door we’ll give them some sugar, lads, let’s give them some Welsh sugar. They always said we’re too small, we’re too slow, we’re too weak, too scared. but yma o hyd [“Still Here”], you sons of speed, and they fall around us. We’re still here.”

The reaction in the studio was overwhelming, with series host Romesh Ranganathan exclaiming, “Wow. I’ve never felt so Welsh!”

Viewers also took to social media to share their amazement at Sheen’s impassioned presentation.

“MICHAEL SHEEN is truly AMAZING. Get a lot of it,” wrote actor Michael Warburton.

“I didn’t think I’d ever said that…but I’m Welsh now,” joked podcaster Michael Coates.

“If the @FAWales don’t appoint @michaelsheen as assistant coach with responsibility for speaking at the World Cup then they have missed a huge opportunity,” wrote journalist David Owens. “This is insane and I want to run through a wall now.”

“I don’t think you can win an Oscar for something you did on a UK game show but maybe Michael Sheen should,” one person commented.

The World Cup will be held in Qatar this winter.
