An overview of IShowSpeed’s effort to meet Cristiano Ronaldo.
Last year, IShowSpeed started out on a quest to meet his idol. On October 24, 2022, Manchester United’s Jessie Lingard confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo was aware of him. The following month (November 10, 2022), Darren went to Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play Aston Villa. His attempts, however, were futile because he was unable to meet the footballer.
He increased the stakes by including a Ronaldo impersonator in his webcast. However, things took a turn for the worst when the Ohio native appeared to pitch a cryptocurrency project with the former, which many called “shady.”
Earlier this year (February 13, 2023), the streamer astonished the internet world when he received Ronaldo’s signature football sneakers, the Nike Mercurial Dream Speed 6 boot.
