With the impending match between England and the USA, the two sides’ FIFA World Cup group stage encounter is worth three points.  

The goal of England is to defeat the United States soccer team in a match at a tournament for the first time, and the possibility of winning a reward might be enough to motivate the “Three Lions.”

Football fans have made the joke that the losing team gets to keep James Corden as England is ready to play the United States in the FIFA World Cup this evening (November 25). It happens at a time when the English actor has recently been involved in a number of controversies.

The internet has joked that whoever loses the game on Friday “gets to keep James Corden.”

Twitter users erupted in a heated debate and some of the comments read, “There’s a lot at stake for either England and USA on Friday – whoever loses has to keep James Corden.” In reply to their tweet, someone else said, “Certainly would give England something to play for!” While another joked, “Good god, the stakes have been upped.” “So if we beat America today, do they agree to keep James Corden?”

“This has become the biggest game in the history of football,” another joked, while another suggested that not having Corden was a “bigger prize than lifting any World Cup”.

James Corden made headlines recently in October when he was momentarily barred from a New York restaurant due to alleged “abusive behavior.” The accusation that Corden had been “very rude” to staff workers was made against him on two different occasions.

Balthazar’s proprietor, Keith McNally, expressed his displeasure in an Instagram post where he criticized the talk show presenter for his behavior. McNally wrote, “James Corden is a hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny cretin of a man. And the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago.”

Corden is an English actor, comedian, singer, and television host. He is best known for co-writing and starring in the critically acclaimed BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey. After relocating to Los Angeles from the UK in 2015, the 44-year-old actor has also hosted The Late Late Show with James Corden.
