sergiosoares is sitting pretty at the top of the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2008 online leaderboard as he challenges for a place in May's Grand Final.

The Swiss has won a total of 561 out of his 629 online matches of EA SPORTS' FIFA 08, proving that he is up there with the best gamers in the globe.

Should Sergio maintain his current run of form, he will be joined at the Grand Final by English trio lordSuffolk, kentUK and dc25886, as dries14 is a nickname for Andries Smit, last year's champion and winner of the qualifying event which took place in the Netherlands last month.

choosen from Egypt, NZSkips and CrazyBrasil are all in pole position to represent their confederations at the Grand Final, as Africa, Oceania and the South American zones all have one place up for grabs, while Australian duo bstay85 (second place overall) and SCOOREY are hoping to clinch the two places on offer in Asia, just like Strikeforce1 and diegouy24 from the US.
