Streaming star iShowSpeed revealed he’s gotten an invite from Cristiano Ronaldo’s new team, Al Nassr, as he could finally meet his hero.
As iShowSpeed has taken over the internet during the last few months, he’s made one thing abundantly clear – he loves Cristiano Ronaldo and views the Portuguese icon as the greatest of all time.
Whenever he’s had the chance to speak to former teammates of the 37-year-old, he’s always sought to see if Ronaldo is aware of him. According to some Manchester United players, that is the case and Speed is on his radar.
The 37-year-old has since left the Premier League giants and headed to Saudi Arabia, signing for Al-Nassr. So, Speed took that opportunity to shoot his shot and see if he can finally meet Ronaldo at some point.

Well, during his January 2nd stream, Speed got a response from them and he freaked out quite a bit after realizing they’d dropped him a message shortly after he hit them up.
“Oh! I’m getting signed,” the streamer yelled as Al-Nassr said they’d be “happy” to have him attend a game. “Oh, let’s go! Me and Ronaldo, playing together in Saudi Arabia!”

Fans were quick to point out that, of course, Speed isn’t getting signed to the club and won’t be Ronaldo’s new strike partner, but it’s not out of the question that the two could at least link up for a video. If he does actually attend Ronaldo’s first game, you’d hope it goes better for Speed than the last few times he’s attempted to see his hero play – given he was on the bench both times. And you’d also hope he keeps his stream live this time too.
