So that's it. Msdossary is your FIFA eWorld Cup champion and keeps a clean sheet in a 4-0 aggregate win.

That's also it for the FIFA 18 season. What a way to cap it off here at the O2 Arena.

We'll be back bigger and better for FIFA 19, be sure to keep a close eye on our website and social media channels:

But for now. We'll see you soon!

19:16

And it's a deserving victory for MsDossary. 4-0 is probably a fair reflection of how it went with Stefano Pinna just unable to get through. In the end it was a fairly comfortable win and MsDossary will take home the title and a cheque for $250,000.

19:14

CHAMPION!!!!!!!!

It's all over!! MsDossary is your 2018 FIFA eWorld Champion

19:14

We're into stoppage time now. Not long until MsDossary gets his hands on that trophy

19:12

Signed, sealed, delivered

MsDossary makes it 4 with some lovely play.

19:10

MsDossary is just ticking the clock down BUT THEN CHANCE for Stefano Pinna. He's through one and one but much like MsDossary in the 1st leg overruns the ball and allows the save to be made. That could just have been his last chance to get back into this final

19:08

The second half is underway and Stefano Pinna has gone all out attack in order to rescue this. He needs three goals.

19:03

Half Time in the second leg. Msdossary leads 1-0 and 3-0 on aggregate. He's 45 minutes away from becoming $250,000 richer.

19:01

IS THAT GAME OVER?

Msdossary opens the scoring in the 30th minute with Thierry Henry. He's now 3-0 up on aggregate and surely not far away from being crowned the FIFA eWorld Cup Champion!

19:00

No goals yet with 25 minutes played. MsDossary still lead 2-0 on aggregate

18:56

Here we go! The second leg, to be played on Xbox One is underway!

18:50

We'll be back underway with the Xbox One leg shortly, with Stefano Pinna looking to come back from a deficit for the 2nd round in succession.

18:44

And the first leg is all over. MsDossary lead 2-0 against Stefano Pinna heading into the 2nd leg on Xbox One. It's been an accomplished performance so far from the Saudi Arabian and he fully deserves the lead.

18:40

MsDossary is happy keeping possession. Running down the clock he's happy with what he's got. And with the next leg to be played on his favoured console he's looking good right now for the trophy.

18:36

GOAL!!!!!

And it's a 2nd for MsDossary and it's Ronaldo again. He powers a header in to leave Stefano Pinna in a world of trouble. 2-0

18:35

The second half is underway...

18:34

Half-time

MsDossary leads Stefano Pinna 1-0 on his 'weaker' console.

18:32

GOAL!!!!!!

No mistake this time as MsDossary goes 1-0 up thanks to a lovely finish by Ronaldo (R9)

18:29

MsDossary, with no-one in the same half as him goes through on goal but overruns it... Big let off for Stefano Pinna

18:28

No goals in the first 15 minutes. Stefano Pinna has been mainly on the front foot.

18:24

And we're finally underway with the 1st leg.

18:18

And the toss is done. PS4 will be first, with the 2nd leg on Xbox One

18:15

Right after we have listened to the musical talents of Zak Abel.

18:08

As with all the matches so far, the final will be played across two legs. One leg will be played on the Xbox One and one on the PS4. The coin flip to decide which console will be first is coming up momentarily...

18:06

His opponent, who won the PS4 side of the bracket, is Stefano Pinna. He came 2nd in Group C and dispatched Hashtag Agge, MoAubameyang and Marcuzo to qualify for the final.

18:04

MsDossary, the Xbox Champion, topped Group B and went on to knockout PResende7, MegaBit and Kurt0411 on his way to final. Scoring goals for fun and keeping them out at the other end MsDossary will enter the final as favourite.

18:02

With the final of the 2018 FIFA eSports World Cup minutes away lets have a look at how we got here. Thirty-two finalists started on Thursday and just two remain in the final. MsDossary of Saudi Arabia and Stefano Pinna of Belgium

18:00

And here they are for Xbox finalist MsDossary.

17:56

The key stats for PS4 finalist Stefano Pinna.

17:52

17:50

And we're back with the final due to start in approximately 10 minutes. To get you in the mood here is some light reading on the final

14:55

We'll be back for the final at 6pm (GMT)

14:53

STEFANO WINS IT!

He is the PS4 bracket winner and beats Marcuzo in the semi final 4-3 on aggregate after a 3-1 win in the second leg after extra time.

So it will be MsDossary vs Stefano Pinna in the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final.

14:50

STEFANO TAKES THE LEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME!

He scores with 10 minutes of extra time remaining to lead 4-3 on aggregate. Can Marcuzo get back into it? It's looking bleak for the Dane..

14:48

Marcuzo hits the post right on the stroke of half time. The whistle goes though and it finishes 3-3 on aggregate. One more half on extra time coming up. Will we have our first penalty shootout of the FIFA eWorld Cup?

14:45

We are going to extra time!

2-1 to Stefano it finishes and 3-3 on aggregate. We will have extra time for the second time this tournament. Both times have involved Marcuzo. He managed to come out on top against Nicolas, will he do the same here?

14:40

STEFANO PINNA LEVELS IT UP!

Cristiano Ronaldo makes it 2-1 to the PSV man and 3-3 on aggregate. An hour gone, what a game we've got here.

14:38

Half time in the second leg. 1-1 in the tie, 3-2 to Marcuzo on aggregate. 45 minutes left in the game to decide Msdossary's opponent in the Grand Final.

14:35

Stefano Pinna levels things up at 1-1 and is back within one goal of Marcuzo. 3-2 on aggregate now.

14:32

GOAL FOR MARCUZO!

Brilliant finish from the outside of his foot by Neymar puts the Man City player 1-0 up in the second leg and 3-1 up on aggregate. A huge moment in this game.

14:30

The second leg is underway. Can Stefano make the comeback? He only trails by one goal on aggregate.

14:25

And the first leg ends that way. 2-1 the advantage for Marcuzo

14:24

GOAL!!!

Some intricate one touch football see StefanoPinna pull a goal back in the 85th minute. Marcuzo's lead as been halved but he still leads 2-1

14:21

Not much happening as both teams are cancelling each other out.

14:17

The 2nd half of the 1st leg is underway. StefanoPinna will need to up his game to get back into this.

14:16

Half-time. 2-0 Marcuzo.

14:15

PENALTY SAVED!!!

In his first foray forward StefanoPinna draws a penalty in the box. But it's a weak effort easily saved and Marcuzo maintains his two goal advantage

14:15

PENALTY - StefanoPinna

14:14

A beautifully crafted goal sees Marcuzo go 2-0 up. He has been dominant so far. Not seen much from StefanoPinna in an attacking sense yet.

14:11

GOAL!!!! Marcuzo breaks the deadlock in the 20th minute with a beautiful finish from Messi into the top corner. 1-0

14:08

The 2nd semi final between Marcuzo and StefanoPinna is underway

13:55

Get ready!

The second semi final, this time on the PS4 is coming up next. Who will face off with Msdossary in the final?

13:51

Another goal for Msdossary and with that FULL TIME!

He wins 3-0 and 8-3 on aggregate. So Msdossary is the first player to take his place in the Grand Final of the FIFA eWorld Cup and will play for the $250,000 cash prize representing the Xbox One.

13:49

Msdossary doubles his second leg lead and that is surely his spot in the final secure. Kurt need four goals in 10 minutes to comeback.

13:44

Curtains for Kurt?

Msdossary takes the lead in the second leg and goes 6-3 up over Kurt on aggregate. 30 minutes of the match left for Kurt to score 3 goals.

13:40

Half time and it's goalless in the second leg and still 5-3 on aggregate to MsDossary. Now or never for Kurt.

13:37

So far it's end to end, but scoreless in the second leg. Kurt needs two goals to pull level.

13:29

But it doesn't end 4-3 as Msdossary reclaims his two goal cushion going into the 2nd leg of the Xbox semi-final. 5-3

13:27

Sustained pressure from Kurt0411 gets its rewards as Messi whips one into the top corner. 4-3 to Msdossary as we enter stoppage time at the end of the 1st leg.

13:25

GOAL!!! A 2nd goal from a corner gives Msdossary a 4-2 and the first 2 goal margin of the matchup. Next level FIFA from Msdossary

13:21

Great save form De Gea keeps Kurt0411 level but only for the next 30 secs as Msdossary takes the lead from the resulting corner. He leads 3-2.

13:19

Second half underway..

13:17

But again he's pegged back straight away as right on the stroke of half-time Msdossary equalises for the 2nd time this match. 2-2

13:16

GOAL!!!!! Kurt goes ahead again 2-1

13:12

The man from Malta steals an early lead as Kurt goes 1-0 up.... for all of 2 minutes as Msdossary walks right up the field from kick-off to equalise

13:10

The first semi final is about to get underway, here are the head to head statistics for the game between Msdossary and Kurt.

13:07

Good afternoon and welcome to the 02 Arena for Day 3 of the FIFA eWorld Cup. The winner will be crowned today and take home a grand prize of $250,000
