KSI hits the ‘Siuuu’ on IShowSpeed
The American YouTuber participated in a Sidemen charity match alongside KSI. The match was held a couple of months back this year. However, Speed’s team won a penalty in the second half of the match. The teenager himself stepped up to take the penalty.
However, he took a really tame penalty, as he hardly had any pace on his right-footed shot. The penalty was easily saved by his opponent’s goalkeeper KSI. As soon as the 30-year-old saved the penalty, he rushed towards Speed and hit the iconic ‘Siuuu’ celebration of the teenager’s idol Cristiano Ronaldo in front of him.
Speed, however, after missing the penalty was dejected. He was down on the ground in the penalty area, only to be consoled by his teammates. It could have been judged from his reactions that he couldn’t quite believe that he spooned a chance to score a goal for his team.
