Brazil, a country known for its footballing talent IRL with five (5) FIFA World Cup titles to their name, proved they are the kings of football no matter the platform after winning the 2022 FIFAe Nations Cup on July 30.

The Brazilian team made up of Paulo “PHzin” Henrique Chaves, Gabriel “Crepaldi10” Crepaldi, and Klinger “Klinger” Correa, fought through four days of intense competition in the run-up to a Grand Final clash against Poland.

The first leg of the Grand Finals would end in a goalless draw, leaving the second leg with everything to play for. Poland would kick off the match with an early goal, but a swift reply from the Brazilians followed by a 90th-minute flicked winner meant the South Americans would go home with the new bespoke trophy for the first time in Copenhagen.

Newly crowned champion, Crepaldi, spoke about his pride in representing Brazil, stating, “I am proud to represent Brazil, I am happy and loving it.” His teammate Phzin also spoke following their victory, thanking everyone for their support. “Thanks for all of the support and the crowd here, this is the biggest achievement of my career.”

Apart from taking home the FIFAe Nations Cup title in front of passionate fans at the Bella Arena, Brazil will also be taking the largest share of the $400,000 prize pool awarded to the world’s best nation.

In what was the first event day with fans since 2019, the three-week long 2022 FIFAe Finals has finally come to a close in Copenhagen, Denmark.

At the end of the event, Umut Gültekin was crowned FIFAe World Champion, Riders became the FIFAe Club World Champion, and Brazil captured the title of FIFAe Nations Champion, winning the pride and hearts of their country.

“The last three weeks have showcased the community’s biggest stages and the global potential of FIFAe with a great setting and fantastic performances shown by all participants,” said Romy Gai, Chief Business Officer at FIFA.

“Congratulations to all three champions for claiming the respective FIFAe trophies, beating the world’s best at the pinnacle global event, and inspiring the next generation of esports talent,” he further stated.

We can’t leave without honouring Africa’s sole representative at the FIFAe Nations Cup, Morocco, who gave their all in the Group Stages of the competition, beating India and Italy as they finished in 5th place in Group D.

Morocco’s team of Kinane “kinanenabhani” Al Nabhani, Ilyass “Msilyass01” Mossaid, Ismael “ismabdza” Boudebza, AymaneSGE, and Aymane “Lordaymane01” El Azami did the continent proud, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this promising team.
