IShowSpeed has attended another Portugal world cup game, and fans are going crazy. The twitch streamer made his second appearance during Portugal vs Morrocco quarter-final match, held in Qatar on December 10, 2022. And while most of his fans were happy to see him live, the others continued to troll him over the ‘Ronaldo curse.’

Speed is one of the die-hard fans of the Manchester United forward, as he can’t stop talking about him when asked. The content creator often shares his love, mimicking his tricks, popular lingos, outfits, etc. But sadly, his favorite football player somehow acts as a dark catalyst as fans tend to blame Speed for his downfall.

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be having a spiraled world cup as Portugal’s football coach benched him for multiple games. Despite his phenomenal track record, Fernando Santos reserved him at his seat, limiting fans to merry appearances.

This moment happened after the South Korea game controversy. Santos did not like his statements, considering his seniority, and took a fiery decision. And while the world recovered from it, a handful of fans had a different theory.
