Mossad ‘MSdossary’ Aldossary beat Stefano ‘StefanoPinna’ Pinna 4-0 on aggregate in the Grand Final of the FIFA eWorld Cup 2018 at The O2 Arena to scoop the top prize of $250,000 (£192,000).
The Team Rogue star, from Saudi Arabia, beat his Belgian opponent, of ECV Esports, by triumphing 2-0 in the first leg on the PlayStation before a 2-0 second leg win on his preferred console of the Xbox.
Aldossary was the heavy favourite heading into the final and despite wasting a one-on-one in the first leg, his finishing proved decisive taking a two-goal advantage onto his preferred console.
Pinna needed to strike first in the second leg to stand any chance, but Aldossary broke the deadlock with Thierry Henry and there was no looking back from then with Ruud Gullit’s goal adding extra gloss to the score late on.
