MoAuba's Path To Glory
A series of top 4 finishes this season for MoAuba, meant he was looking unlikely to maintain his record of winning a tournament every year since FIFA 16. Heading into the FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 final, he was not one of the favourites but managed to beat the four highest-ranked PS4 players on his way to the final before taking down Msdosarry - the Saudi Arabian was undefeated up until this point. This makes MoAuba the first ever German FIFA eWorld Cup Champion.

It wasn't so simple for MoAuba however, his tournament was on the line as he overcame Argentina's Nicolas 'nicolas99fc' Villalba in a penalty shootout in the PS4 final. Meanwhile, Msdosarry managed to take down Vitality's Rafsou 4-3 in the Xbox final.
The grand final kicked off on the Xbox One, the home platform of Msdossary, ending in a 1-1 draw. MoAuba then won 2-1 on PS4 to clinch the title.
