Kai’s Path to Victory

The Germany Showdown brought together the three best online FIWC gamers and the 2012 national champion for a knockout tournament that would send one player to the FIWC13 Grand Final in Madrid. After some fierce competition the Final comes down to defending champion Kai Wollin and challenger Marius Popp. Kai selects Real Madrid while Marius sticks with underdogs Fortuna Dusseldorf, a team his used throughout the tournament.

Kai’s Madrid is too strong for Marius, scoring three goals without reply.

“I feel so happy and relieved. The pressure as a favourite was really high. I’m so happy that I have won it!“

Kai told FIFA.com shortly after securing his second consecutive national title.

“I ‘ve been a fan of Dortmund since childhood, specifically since watching my very first Bundesliga game.”
