WATCH: ‘Ted Lasso’ Characters Announce U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team Olympic Roster

“Give me the ball, I want the ball! Give me the ball, I want the ball!”

Today, the official Olympic roster for the U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team was revealed — with a little twist. None other than AFC Richmond coaches Ted Lasso and Coach Beard from Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso gave the official announcement! Check out the video below!

Ted Lasso stars Jason Sudeikis, an American college football coach from Kansas who’s hired along with his ever-faithful partner-in-crime Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) to coach AFC Richmond, a professional soccer team in England, with literally zero experience coaching soccer. Equal parts entertaining, heartwarming, and downright funny, Ted Lasso is a story about optimism, mentorship, found family, perseverance, and the power of believing.
