Russell Brand - Russell Brand Turns Soccer Pundit

British actor/comedian Russell Brand has fulfilled his dream of becoming a Tv soccer pundit.

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star is a longtime fan of London club West Ham and he was given the chance to weigh in on the team's performance during a special appearance on soccer show Match of The Day on Saturday (22Mar14).

Brand was given a place on the panel as part of a special episode to raise money for the U.K.'s Sport Relief charity, and the funnyman was delighted to give his opinion on West Ham's match against Manchester United.

The star's team lost two-nil, and Brand mocked a goal by United star Rooney by saying, "This is a day where we have to focus on the injustices that preceded Rooney's goal... the East End (of London, where West Ham are based) has not seen that sort of injustice since the dark days of Jack the Ripper."

Brand documented his time on the show in a series of posts on his page, sharing pictures of himself onset and posing for snaps with the regular presenters.
