The Saudi Arabian beat out challengers from across the world to take the coveted title after a weekend of fierce video game action

Musaed “Falcon MSDosary” Aldossary was crowned the winner of the FUT Champions Cup Manchester on the Road to the FIFA eWorld Cup.

The Saudi Arabian was one of 128 challengers to enter the FIFA 18 event, held over the weekend at the Victoria Warehouse. 

And after three days of arduous playing, he was the surprise winner of a tournament that brought together some of the world's best players. 

Falcon MSDosary took on German pro Philipp 'Eisvogel' Schermer in the Grand Final and prevailed in a riveting decider. 

Eisvogel struck first once the match began, but his opponent wouldn't go down without a fight. The score at the end of the first leg was a deserved 2-2, considering how even most of the game seemed.

But it didn't take long for MSDosary to gain the upper hand for the first time in the final. He scored a few minutes after kickoff and again later in the half, meaning the second-leg was 2-0 going into halftime.

Two more goals would follow for MSDosary, making it 6-4 on aggregate and putting the game out of reach for his German opponent.

“It's been a year-and-a-half, and I'm thirsty," the winner beamed upon receiving his trophy.

“It also gave me a lot of trust in myself, and that my play is tight.”
