The loser takes Corden.
Fans of the FIFA World Cup have raised the stakes of the upcoming England vs. USA match by saying that the loser must keep actor and talk show host James Corden within its borders … permanently.
“If England beat USA on Friday then they have to keep James Corden permanently,” tweeted one user.
“America vs England on Friday winner keeps James Corden,” said another.
“This has become the biggest game in the history of football,” joked another.
“Now that’s a far bigger prize than lifting any World Cup,” a fourth person wrote.
The Post has reached out to Corden for comment.
The “Late Late Show” host recently made headlines after he allegedly caused a scene at the NYC restaurant Balthazar and then was banned by the famed eatery’s owner Keith McNally.
McNally later lifted the injunction, saying that he felt sorry for exposing Corden — who claimed in 2020 that he had anger issues — and that “all was forgiven.” However, Corden also later admitted on his late-night show that he was “rude” to restaurant staff and he “deeply” regretted that.
“James Corden just called me and apologized profusely,” McNally wrote in an Instagram post. “Having f–ked up myself more than most people, I strongly believe in second chances.”
Corden was later accused of allegedly stealing one of comic Ricky Gervais’ jokes from 2018 — an allegation the 44-year-old has denied.
The World Cup match between England and the US is scheduled to take place on Friday, Nov. 25.
