The highlights are out
It finished 8-7 as the Sidemen edged out YouTube Allstars in a thriller.
And now the highlights are out on YouTube.
If you missed anything, here's all the action.
Miniminter was lethal today - scoring a hat-trick for the Sidemen.
His three goals came from just 0.4 xG - which even Erling Haaland wouldn't sniff at.
He had 10 shots at goal and was the decisive factor.
Behzinga praises Sidemen
Behzinga has praised Sidemen for their victory against the YouTube Allstars.
He took to Twitter to report a simple message.
Deji has hinted who his next opponent is.
The comedian defeated Fousey last time out.
And now it appears he has his mind set on the YouTuber.
He tweeted: "My next opponent @ishowspeedsui" with a picture of the pair in the YouTube Allstars dressing room.
KSI the enforcer
KSI might have been on the receiving end of a nasty tackle from Speed less than a minute into the game. But, he was the biggest enforcer on the pitch.
The YouTuber turned boxer won four tackles, made two interceptions and won 11 duels.
He contributed the most defensive actions out of all the players on show.
Chris MD's heat map
Chris MD was the midfield general in Sidemen's 8-7 win over YouTube Allstars.
And his impressive heat map shows how involved he was in today's charity game.
No one had as many touches on the pitch as Chris MD did in the match.
Speed fuming with Clattenburg
Mark Clattenburg was on the receiving end of abuse from YouTuber Speed.
The American had a goal chalked off - and wasn't happy about it.
"Oh my god! So much anger built inside of me you know. I’m mad bro," he said after the final whistle.
"Who is that ref? Are you even a Premier League ref bro? That’s a clear goal, they just hating. I’m very p**ssed off now bro."
Sidemen FC have taken to Twitter to reveal they have made over £1million for charity.
"However, because a number of fans tried to enter the stadium without paying, they were forced to close the stadium gates," they wrote on Twitter.
"Thank you so much to everyone who made this day so special and helped to raise over £1,000,000 for our incredible chosen charities.
"Unfortunately however due to a small minority attempting to break into the stadium, we were forced to lock the gates meaning a number of you weren’t able to get in despite having tickets.
"This was a security and safety decision, however we appreciate this is incredibly frustrating and disappointing for those unfairly impacted. We deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused."
CHRIS MD joins in with the Toney trolling
Football YouTuber ChrisMD - who scored a goal today - added his own rendition of last weeks Ivan Toney trolling to the Sidemen Charity aftermath.
Arsenal fan Chris, copied Gunners star Gabriel after he brilliantly trolled Brentford star Toney with a "Nice kick about with the boys," Tweet.
Chris copied this after the game, Tweeting: "Nice kick about with the boys."
Reaction to Chunkz screamer
Following news Crawley Town sent their scouts to the game today, Chunkz - who also starred at Soccer Aid - scored a beauty from long-range to open the scoring, and it got many fans talking about a potential contract for the Londoner.
One user said: "Chunkz to Crawley here we go!"
Another said: "That’s Chunkz signing for Crawley!"
A third added: "CHUNKZ IS WORKING FOR THAT CONTRACT FROM CRAWLEY TOWN, WHAT A HIT.”
KSI on the Charity Match
KSI to Sky Sports before the game: "It's incredible (the atmosphere), 27,000 people screaming, shoutin, raring to go, everyone's buzzing.
"10 years ago we were in our bedrooms playing Fifa pretending to be our favourite footballers.
"I didn't expect to ever be on a pitch, or to be able to do boxing or music or whatever I'm doing. I didn't expect any of this."
Nottingham Forest defender Neco Williams: "Where’s VAR what a goal SPEED."
One Twitter user shared a clip of Speed doing stepovers and joked: "Speed plays exactly like Ronaldo."
Once again The xG Philosophy on Twitter has provided expected goals data for the game.
And it's same to say both teams overperformed quite a bit.

Chunkz revealed he nearly cried
In his post-match interview Chunkz revealed he nearly cried when he scored his wonderful long-range effort.
He said: "I looked at the space and thought you know what, Pieface didn't have the capability (to save his shot).
"Thank god because I thought you know what go for it and I saw it sink in and I almost cried.
"Because you know how I've struggled at Soccer Aid three years in a row and I came back to the Sidemen pitch and I done it."
