In our weekly round-up here at The Stats Zone, we look at the biggest talking points currently within the FIFA eSports scene. These may range from player transfers, online/offline tournament announcements, tournament results and more.
Last weekend saw the inaugural FIFA eNations Cup take place in London. After coming through the group of death, it was France who went all the way and claimed glory over the other 19 nations. It was a first major FIFA 19 championship for DaXe and Maestro after both had shown impressive form in the weeks leading up to the tournament. For Maestro it was the perfect response after losing the Grand Final of April’s FUT Champions Cup the week before.
