The reigning FIFA eWorld Cup Champion Mossad “MsDossary” Aldossary (Rogue) added to his growing trophy collection with an decisive victory at the FUT Champions Cup April event in London.
The triumph marked his second major win of the FIFA 19 competitive season, and third FCC event win of his career. The Saudi star, and self-proclaimed “King of the Jungle” made good on his word, asserting his dominance over a stacked field of the best FIFA 19 competitors in the world.

In the Grand Final, MsDossary went up against PS4 console champion Corentin “Vitality Maestro” Thuillier, but to be honest, the match was decided quickly after the eventual champion took a 5-0 lead in the first leg (on MsDossary's away console, PS4, nonetheless). The second leg was merely a formality as MsDossary held off his French opponent, limiting him to just one goal over the two-leg final.
There was no doubt though, that the best match of the final day of competition in London was the XB1 console final. A rematch from the Swiss round on Day 1 between MsDossary and Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt was the matchup everyone wanted to see, and it couldn't have been scripted any better.
Arguably the two best FIFA 19 players on the planet right now went head-to-head in an absolute thriller. F2Tekkz climbed out of a 2-0 hole in the second leg, showing off his elite stick skills (which he also put on display in his XB1 semifinal vs Tom “Rebel Stokes” Stokes drawing cheers from those in attendance and setting the stream chat on fire), the level of which might never have been seen before. But MsDossary's discipline eventually won out, ending F2Tekkz's unprecedented winning streak across a slew of events in recent months.
The rivalry between MsDossary and F2Tekkz was detailed in our Day 1 recap of the event, as the two competitors lobbed vocal shots at each other in separate post-match interviews regarding their standing as the “best” in the world.
MsDossary's powerful statement on the final day, left F2Tekkz on the losing end of the rivalry ... for now.
Earlier in the day on the PS4 side of the bracket, upsets abounded as competitors like Joksan “Joksan” Redona (Complexity) and Marcus “Marcuzo” Jørgensen (North) who showed well on Day 2 were handed defeats in the quarterfinals. Other competitors who made waves included Lev “xLevVinken” Vinken (remained undefeated over three days until the console semifinals) and Shaun “Shellzz” Springette (ManCity), but neither was able to get past PS4 console champion, Vitality Maestro.
That will do it for our coverage from the FUT Champions Cup April in London, as the Road To The FIFA eWorld Cup rolls on, with just a handful of events left this season for FIFA 19 esports players to put their skills to the test. Check out upcoming event details here.
