Team United States left everyone surprised after they defeated the three-time World Cup champion, South Korea. After this, everyone realized that they are now ready to take the throne. During the finals, they gave Team China a really tough time and the opposing team couldn’t do anything about them. They won the finals with a final score of 3-0, which is simply amazing.
Team United States’ Players
The team includes DPS Corey Nigra, Jay “Sinatraa” Won, and Kyle “KSF” Frandanisa. Main tank Matthew “Super” DeLisi and Off-tank Indy “SPACE” Halpern. And finally, Main Support Grant “Moth” Espe and Flex Support Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty. All of these players played exceptionally well throughout the tournament, and they have proved how deadly they can be when in a team together.
How Things Went Down
During the finals, Team United states managed to put China in a really difficult situation in late-game situations. For instance, in map two, China had everything in control and everyone thought that they are going to win the map. However, they lost King’s Row because they couldn’t handle the push by the Team United States. During the final map, the US team dominated Dorado and they had complete control over everything. While playing defense, they knew where to stand and where to not. Thanks to the amazing performance of Corey, Sinatraa, and SPACE, the team won the final map and the tournament.
As soon as the final map ended, Team United States started celebrating their victory. The crowd was cheering the word “Champions” and it was just amazing. Both sides shook hands and went to the center of the stage to receive their rewards. Every player in Team US received a gold medal, while Sinatraa also won the T-Mobile MVP award. This award was based on the votes cast by the audience who were watching the match. Sinatraa after receiving the MVP claimed that Corey deserved the award. Sinatraa was also asked whether he thinks of himself as the best Overwatch player in the world, to which he replied by saying “yeah.”
Team United states are now the champions of the 2019 Overwatch World Cup. They will be once again returning next year with the goal to once again dominate the tournament. In the meantime, all of the players are going to head back and play for their respective league teams. Fans are now eagerly waiting for the next year’s World Cup because they can’t wait to see who will become the next champion.
