One of FIFA’s most popular streamers Edward ‘Castro1021’ Castro invited a large group of viewers, subscribers, and moderators from his Twitch channel into his home to watch Mexico play Korea in the World Cup. 

The FIFA player also streamed the entire event so that those who could not make it would feel like they were a part of the experience.

For football fans, the World Cup is one of the most significant sporting events of the year, and for Castro, it also marked an opportunity to give back to the people who helped achieve his success.

He welcomed guests in requesting that show their love and support for the Mexican Men’s National Team as they took on Korea.

Among the guests were OpTic Gaming’s Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who took the time to do a brief interview with the host. 

Castro provided tacos, beer, and plenty of places to sit while watching the Group Stage matchup.

It is safe to say most left the party with little to complain about as not only did Mexico win the game, but the host was quite generous.

This is not the first time he has streamed a watch party for the World Cup games, and if Mexico makes a run, it would not be a surprise to see more of the same.

Fortunately, if you didn’t get to catch the stream, there were of plenty of tweets and clips so fans can go back and see what they missed.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
