The Sidemen Charity Match 2023 ended on September 9, with Sidemen FC beating the YouTube All-Stars XI by a huge score of 8-5. Even though there were many interesting things that happened during the game, one sad thing was that the leader of the YouTube All-Stars, Theo Baker, got hurt and had to leave on a stretcher.
In the 30th minute of the game, Theo was hurt when a ball came to him just outside the penalty area. He tried to shoot with his right foot, but the follow-through caused him to bend his hips, which hurt him. It’s important to note that Theo had hip surgery earlier this year, and this game was only his second time playing in such a big football game.
What Happened to Theo Baker?
During the Sidemen FC vs. YouTube All-Stars charity football game at the London Stadium, Theo Baker got hurt so badly that he had to be taken off on a stretcher. The former Hashtag United player, who is now a YouTuber, fell to the ground in pain after he seemed to make an old injury worse. He needed help getting off the field during the exhibition match on Saturday.
People thought that the famous YouTuber, who has more than 1.1 million subscribers, would be one of the better players on the All-Stars team. But 25 minutes into the game, Baker fell to the ground in pain and held his hip. His coach, Mark Goldbridge, had to pull someone from the bench to take his place.
Baker was about 20 yards away when he lined up a shot on the edge of the box, but his shot went well over the bar. It looks like he landed funny after taking the shot, and his teammates were worried when he fell to the ground in a heap. It comes just a few months after Baker said he had hip surgery to fix a problem that had been going on for a long time. It’s said to be Baker’s first football game since he had surgery.
But it looks like he has taken a step back because he couldn’t leave the field on his own and medical staff ran onto the field to help him. He was taken off the field in the first half and replaced by Goldbridge. As he was being brought off, a big part of the 60,000 people in the London Stadium chanted his name.
Theo Baker Updates After the Sidemen Charity Match
In the 30th minute, Theo Baker got hurt, and when he fell to the ground, he grabbed his hips and showed clear signs of pain. The medical staff got there quickly, but it took them until the 34th minute to carefully carry him off the field on a bed. The YouTuber stopped playing in the Sidemen Charity Match after that.
It was a big loss for the away team since Theo was their leader and was thought to be one of their most important players for the future. When he got hurt, the YouTube All-Stars XI were tied at 1-1. They went on to lose the Sidemen Charity Match 8-5.
Later on September 9, in the evening, the YouTuber went to his X account, which used to be called Twitter, to tell people about his injury. He shared a few photos, and one of them showed him using crutches to help him stand. The YouTuber will now have to go through a number of scans and tests before a diagnosis can be made about his injury. At the moment, it is still not clear if he will need another surgery.
What did the Fans Say?
Fans and people who like Sidemen sent him words of support after his recent tweet. They wished him a quick and full recovery. This fifth Sidemen Charity Match was also one of the biggest ones so far, with players like MrBeast, JiDion, Kai Cenat, and IShowSpeed all taking part. Over £2 million was also raised for causes at the event.
