Last weekend's Gfinity FIFA Series March in London saw Argentinian Nicolas99fc beat Msdossary in the grand final and lift his second Gfinity FIFA Series LQE. This win lifted Nicolas back to the top of our TSZ PS4 Player Rankings and extended his lead at the top of the PS4 Global Series Rankings.
Afortunadamente pude ganar una vez más un LQE en Londres. No me venía sintiendo cómodo con los resultados anteriores y esto es un buen impulso para mí. Gracias a todos por el apoyo 🐭👍 pic.twitter.com/RgIQOO6K3m— nicolas99fc (@Nicolas99fc) March 24, 2019
