For the first time in years, The Sidemen hosted a charity football match against the YouTube All Stars.
The Sidemen, a YouTube group made up of various famous faces including KSI, used to host the event annually, but chose to put an end to that in 2018.
But it’s finally back, with the two teams locking horns at The Valley, the home of League One side Charlton Athletic, on Saturday afternoon.
And within the first 16 seconds of the charity game, social media sensation Speed (also known as IShowSpeed) produced a highlight moment.
With not even close to a minute on the clock, the YouTuber – who’s videos regularly go viral due to his eccentric personality and hot-headed nature – wiped out KSI.
It was a tackle worthy of any Sunday League encounter and straight after sending KSI tumbling to the ground, Speed celebrated both wildly and unforgivingly.
Check out footage of the incident…

Well, you certainly don’t see that everyday on a professional football pitch!
Shortly after his wild tackle on rival KSI, Speed was at it again.
The teenage content creator produced another slide tackle and this time, it helped set up the first goal of the day for the YouTube All Stars.
It was a great strike from Chunkz as well, who recently played in the 2022 edition of Soccer Aid.

Speed’s slide tackles can do both good and bad on a football match – and you have to say fair play to that!
The strike from Chunkz from all of 30 yards was pretty darn special as well, although PieFace – a well-known FIFA content creator – in goal probably could have done a little better.
How did Sidemen FC vs YouTube All Stars finish?
Chunkz’s goal was one of four scored by YouTube All Stars in the first half. They went in at the break with a 4-3 lead, Yung Filly and Theo Baker among those on the scoresheet at The Valley.
Tobi Brown (TBJZL) levelled the scores at 4-4 shortly after the half-time interval, before Castro restored the All Stars’ lead.
There was then a flurry of goals late on, the last of them netted by hat-trick hero Miniminter to secure an 8-7 victory for Sidemen FC over Mark Goldbridge’s team. What a game!
