After an impressive run through the group stages and coming into the finals with an unbelievable +30 goal difference, Tyrone Ryan has been crowned winner of the FAI eLeague of Ireland and will go on to represent Ireland at the FIFA eNations Series later this year.
Tyrone finished the tournament with an unspeakable +43 GD but it wasn’t hard fought for. The grand finals saw him face up against his teammate Mr WeLLy, who gave Tyrone his biggest challenge yet. Tyrone managed to swoop the victory from WeLLy in a closer-than-it-seems 3 – 0 victory over 2 legs.
WeLLy had come up with an arguably tougher bracket, first facing Dundalk, and then moving on to face Drogheda United’s Rannerz, Ireland’s second rep for the FIFA eNations, in what could be possibly called the best comeback in football history! Ciaran came from a 2 goal deficit to eventually clench the W in overtime, saving us from witnessing the first penalty shootout in the eLOI!
