- Dust has settled on FIFA eWorld Cup 2019
- 'MoAuba' claimed title at The O2 in London
- We bring you a statistical look at the tournament
In winning the FIFA eWorld Cup, Germany's ‘MoAuba’ bagged a life-changing $250,000, as well as an exclusive trip to The Best FIFA Football Awards. This year’s eWorld Cup witnessed an increased prize pool of $500,000, with the runner-up receiving $100,000.
The amount ‘MoAuba’ scored en route to winning the eWorld Cup. After being one of the top goalscorers in the group stage after ‘Stokes’, ‘Ustun’ and ‘Zezinho’, the Werder Bremen man showed his attacking prowess in the knockout stage by out-scoring elite players such as ‘Pinna97’, ‘Maestro’, ‘Nicolas99fc’ and ‘MsDossary’.
‘Stokes’ had 43 goals to his name as the group stage reached its conclusion – the most of any player. It included putting ten past ‘Ebinho’ over two legs in their Round 7 game. Though in threatening form going into the Round of 16, having topped Group A, the Xbox Global Series Playoff winner would bow out in his first knockout game against ‘NRaseck’.
‘MsDossary’ conceded three goals over two legs in each of his knockout games at the Grand Final. The Saudi Arabian overcame ‘Megabit’ 4-3, ‘GoalMachine’ 8-3 and ‘Rafsou’ 4-3, before falling to ‘MoAuba’ in the Final Showdown 3-2.
Three continents were represented at the eWorld Cup final day, reflecting the global reach of competitive FIFA. Two Europeans were present in ‘MoAuba’ (Germany) and ‘Rafsou’ (France), while ‘MsDossary’ (Saudi Arabia) represented Asia, and ‘Nicolas99fc’ (Argentina) South America.
Margins are fine in the eWorld Cup group stage and it showed as two of the final knockout berths in the four groups were snatched on goal difference. ‘NRaseck’ pipped ‘DaXe’ to Group B’s fourth and final knockout place on goal difference, and ‘Nicolas99fc’ did the same with ‘Marko’ in Group C.
The number of times Xbox No1 'Tekkz' failed to make it out of the group stage or Swiss rounds at a tournament this year – and it came at the eWorld Cup, the biggest stage of them all. One of the pre-tournament favourites having claimed seven titles this campaign going into the Grand Final, the Englishman's early exit came as a shock to everyone in London.
‘GoalMachine’ conceded zero goals over two legs in the Round of 16 – meaning he was the only player to keep a clean sheet on aggregate in the knockout rounds at the eWorld Cup 2019. The Canadian would eventually bow out in the quarter-finals at the hands of eventual finalist ‘MsDossary'.
