Last weekend saw the final FUT Champions Cup of the season draw to a close as the reigning world champion Msdossary continued his imperious record in the UK capital. The Rogue man dispatched players such as F2Tekkz on his way to the EA FUT Champions Cup April Grand Final, where he defeated Frenchman Maestro to pick up his second major trophy of the season.

It’s fair to say that the FIFA scene has been dominated this season by two players. The reigning world champion Msdossary and the number one ranked FIFA 19 player F2Tekkz. The two have developed a fierce rivalry in their battle to call themselves the best FIFA player in the world. Tekkz has won more major tournaments this season, however Dossary has that all-important world championship crown. However, their war on the pitch appears to have exaggerated off it. After each were separately interviewed at the FUT Champions Cup, both were dismissive of the other’s achievements, and it’s clear there is no love lost between the two. Their rivalry has also spilled onto social media after Msdossary sent out this tweet below...

F2Tekkz responded with a tweet of his own which you can read here, beware the tweet contains strong language.

The two will face off this weekend representing their respective nations with England and Saudi Arabia both placed in Group A of the FIFA eNations Cup. It’s sure to be a match you won’t want to miss!
