Tom Hanks seems to have a case of World Cup fever as the USWNT prepares to take on Columbia in the team's first knockout-round game of the 2015 tournament.
The Oscar-winning actor put out a series of tweets in which he takes a roll call of the World Cup favorite's roster, and even calls out the turf that the women have been forced to play on, despite many protests.
After shouting out all 23 of the team members, including a nod to "Amy" Wambach that was either a joke or a typo, Hanks lets the women know they are his heroes before the Monday night match in Edmonton.
Roll call! Boxx? Brian? Chalupny? Engen? Harris? Good to have you...— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) June 21, 2015
Heath? Holiday? Beast Johnston? Klingenberg? Ali Krieger? Sydney Leroux, did I pronounce that right?...— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) June 21, 2015
Lloyd, Morgan, and Naeher? Good. O'Hara? O'Reilly? Press? Ok, I see you...— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) June 21, 2015
Rampone? Just say 'here'. Rapinoe, how was Paris? Amy Rodriquez? Sauerbrunn. Sauerbrunn! Thank you, Becks!— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) June 21, 2015
Hope? Hope Solo? Gotcha. Amy Wambach? Check. Listen up, Team! You're all my heroes... Careful on that turf... Hanx— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) June 21, 2015
