Like every competition, the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 has its favorites before the tournament. The teen sensation “Tekkz”, the reigning champion “MsDossary” and the PlayStation No. 1 “Nicolas99fc” are among the names that are expected to go far in the competition, unless they win the trophy on August 4th.
With the elite of the world coming to London, all 32 participants want to realize their dream of becoming the EA SPORTS FIFA 19-World Champion.
We take a look at some of the lowest rated seeds in London, which, while not in the top 8 in their console, have the potential to cause a stir at the eWorld Cup.
Xbox #10 ( DullenMike )
This season Tekkz and MsDossary vied for supremacy in the competitive FIFA scene – the former won three FUT Champions Cup titles while the latter won two. The only other recipient of a FUT Champions Cup in this campaign? Germany’s DullenMike.
The teenager replaced “Tekkz” as the youngest FUT Champions Cup winner, having won the title at the age of 16 against “Gorilla” and “Dani” on the way to the title. On his day, the Xbox racer has proven that he is a match for everyone.
PlayStation #10 ( Fifilza)
Entering the form in the eWorld Cup can be crucial to the success of the tournament – and “Fifilza” brings momentum to the grand finale. The Brazilian impressed with a string of high-profile wins in the FIFA 19 Global Series playoffs, before retiring in the semi-finals following a narrow defeat by the eventual winner and the PlayStation No1 “Nicolas99fc”.
The Wolves player will enter the tournament with confidence, not only for his performance in the playoffs, but also for his impressive performances throughout the year, including the FUT Champions Cup and the eClub World Cup.
Xbox #12 ( Janoz )
Only three of the 32 players in London know what it means to reach the eWorld Cup final: reigning champion “MsDossary”, last year’s runner-up “Pinna97” and “Janoz”. The latter last reached the final showdown in 2011 and lost to eventual winner Francisco Cruz.
Although that was eight years ago and much has changed in the game (for example, the current Xbox No1 “Tekkz” would have been ten years old!), “Janoz” still has the experience and know-how to do so reach last two. This can definitely benefit the Colombian in the British capital if he makes another leap into the world.
PlayStation #9 ( Ustun )
Although Denmark is a heavyweight in the FIFA competition scene, Ustun is the only Dane in this year’s Grand Final. Ustun, a former eClub World Cup winner, has demonstrated his ability to cope with competitive pressures at the highest level.
Can he contribute to a memorable year winning the console finals of the FUT Champions Cup in March and the semi-final of the FIFA eNations Cup?
Xbox #13 ( Tass )
‘Tass’ has left a disappointing FIFA 18 behind and this year has shown a strong performance qualifying him for the eWorld Cup. Although he admits that he was surprised to reach the Grand Final this season, it is not without reason.
In FIFA 19, Tass reached the semi-finals of the eClub World Cup 2019 and represented his youth team Arsenal in the first ePremier League. He comes from the English capital and thus has the advantage of playing in his own country, the Grand Final. He will love playing more at The O2 in London than most others. In addition to his third Grand Final, he is well acquainted with the pressures and challenges ahead.
