Notably, this video was thought as the main reason for the beef between the two, thus as soon as the match started, iShowSpeed came running toward KSI while he was trying to tackle the ball. iShowSpeed kicked KSI down and even celebrated his tackle, showing that it wasn’t about the ball that KSI had in his possession but about beef itself.

Eventually, KSI had a number of tweets before the match saying Speed is a “fraud” and wants to expose him as well.
