England wins second FIFA Interactive World Cup title

Spencer “Gorilla” Ealing of England won the FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) 2017 in London earlier today. Gorilla became the second English player to win the FIWC title since Chris Bullard won it back in 2005.

Gorilla claimed the title with a 7-3 win over Germany’s Kai “Deto” Wollin in the two-legged grand final. Gorilla, who won the Xbox division, erased a 3-1 first half deficit to earn a 3-3 draw in the first leg, which was played on the PS4. Once he got to his ‘home’ console in the second leg, Gorilla was able to impose his will on the attack as he had for most of the knockout stage.

A 4-0 win in the leg gave him the title and a $200,000 first-place prize, equivalent to R 2,6 million.

Gorilla’s had this to say  about his win:
“I don’t know what to say, but yeah its amazing. To take three away goals was a massive boost for me and that’s what won me the game.”
