DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT In Sheffield United FA Cup Preview Video

Def Leppard 2023. Joe Elliott 1994

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has taken part in a new preview video for an FA Cup match featuring his beloved Sheffield United.

Joe can be heard in a new video posted by actor Ryan Reynolds ahead of an FA Cup match.

Ryan is co-owner of non-league team Wrexham AFC with fellow American actor Rob McElhenney who play Sheffield United in an FA Cup Fourth Round match later today.

The game can be seen live on BBC One from 4:05pm with kick-off at 4:30pm.

In the video which can be seen below highlights of Wrexham and Sheffield United are shown with Joe, Ryan and Rob talking over the top.

Def Leppard music is also used.

Update 6:34pm UK - The match finished 3:3 with Joe's Blades equalising in the last moments of added time. There will now be a replay at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United are currently second in The Championship (the league below the Premier League).

And Sav's favourite team Sheffield Wednesday are also currently second in their league - League One, which is essentially the third division.

Def Leppard of course started their career playing in the Spoon Factory down the road from Sheffield United's Bramall Lane football stadium.

The band will be playing there for the first time this May during The World Tour.
