6th minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (1-0): It would be another tackle from Speed that set up the first goal from Chunkz. These might be amateurs but what a strike from the Beta Squad man.
9th minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (2-0): Niko scored a controversial goal where a fan ran on the field during the play but another classy finish. Yung Filly had great run to set up the goal drawing four defenders on him at one point.
12th minute — Sidemen FC Goal (2-1): An unlikely goal from Vikkstar123 brought the Sidemen within one. He’s scored from a penalty before in a charity match but this one from open play got the crowd going wild and the Sidemen back in it.
18th minute — Sidemen FC Goal (2-2): The main guys for the Sidemen linked up well for this goal. Manny showed great pace down the left wing, finding Simon in the middle who did a clean give and go to Tobi who smashed it by Cal the Dragon.
26th minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (3-2): An unbelievable strike from Yung Filly. About 20 yards out and roofed it to the top 90.
32nd minute — Sidemen FC Goal (3-3): Simon caught Cal the Dragon creeping out. Cal had been claiming crosses all first half but got too ambitious this time. This was the seventh Sidemen charity goal for Simon.
During the first half it became apparent that Speed doesn’t appear to know the offside rule.

41st minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (4-3): Theo Baker with some fancy footwork to get around KSI and to put the YouTube All Stars back in front. The assist came from American TikTok sensation Noah Beck who played solid game.
Halftime: Youtube All Stars 4 Sidemen FC 3

51st minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (5-4): Castro regains the lead for the YouTube All Stars after two minutes. Nice bit of passing from YouTube All Stars. Is that 2015 Barcelona??
64th minute — Offside Goal: Speed thought he had scored but he was offside but that didn’t stop the celebration. Wow did everyone watching want that goal to count for the American.

73rd minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (6-6): Niko ties things up at six while people were a little distracted at Speed standing over KSI. A shot from Chunkz was spilled and Niko cleaned it up.
81st minute — YouTube All Stars Goal (7-6): Chunkz was causing problem again and the ball fell to WillNE who poked home the YouTube All Stars’ seventh goal.
85th minute — Sidemen FC Goal (7-7): This was one of the best goals of the game as Tobi found his brother Manny with a ridiculous outside of the foot cross that the younger brother smashed home with a header.
88th minute — Sidemen FC Goal (8-7): Simon completes his hat trick catching the goalkeeper out once again to score a sensation game-winner. The perfect end to a wildly entertaining affair.
