FIFA eChampions League – Who Is The GOAT?
The eChampions League is now the next battleground in the brewing story of FIFA’s Greatest Player. Two players, two claims – Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt has had much written about him this year after a raft of trophy wins but current eWorld Cup Champion Mossad “Msdossary” Aldossary isn’t taking it lying down.
So let’s take at the two potential GOAT’s ahead of the eChampions League.
One of those was Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt, the standout player of the season his trophy haul this year has rewritten the record books. He has qualified for all 16 live events this year – winning 3 FUT Champions Cups, the PGL Cup and the eClub World Cup. A win at the eChampions League, on the wrong console, would go a long way to cement his status.
The man standing in his way is Mossad “Msdossary” Aldossary, while Tekkz can point to his haul over the last season and a half, Msdossary can claim longevity with his wins stretching all the way back to FIFA 2017 and a head-to-head record against Tekkz that favours the man from Saudi Arabia. With a recent win in FUT Champions Cup 6: London and playing on his favoured console the smart money may well be on Msdossary.
