Following Portugal’s elimination from the World Cup, Speed was in tears and saying that “it’s over” for Ronaldo. KSI put out a tweet mocking Speed after the loss.
The 2022 World Cup has had its fair share of upsets. From Japan taking down Germany early on in the tournament to Croatia beating Brazil, it’s been near-impossible to predict who will win in the end.
Portugal has a rich history when it comes to football, with Cristiano Ronaldo being a superstar footballer famous the world ’round.
IShowSpeed was really rooting for the Portuguese player to come through and take it home for what could be his final World Cup appearance, but they were ultimately felled by Morocco. KSI took the opportunity to mock Speed following the loss.
