NASHVILLE – Another week, another eMLS matchup presented by Jackson.
In lieu of our scheduled match at Nissan Stadium, Nashville SC eMLS athlete Cormac “Doolsta” Dooley will take on FC Dallas’ Ihab ‘i9ibbs’ Abualneel in a EA Sports FIFA 20 clash presented by Jackson this Friday at 5 p.m. CT. The match will be streamed live on Nashville SC’s Twitch, Facebook and Twitter.
Here are all of the details on how you can get your soccer fix this Friday night.
Doolsta and i9ibbs will face off over two legs, with the winner decided based on aggregate score. They will be using rosters built using the FIFA Ultimate Team tools. Both squads will wear their respective club’s jerseys, as Nashville SC’s jersey was recently added to the Ultimate Team mode.
Normal FIFA Ultimate Team roster rules apply, with the additional caveat that each gamer must build their rosters with 10 club players and one Icon card.
Tale of the Tape
Doolsta joined Nashville SC for the 2020 eMLS season after completing a sweep of all three eMLS events in 2019 with the Philadelphia Union. Before this season was put on hold, Doolsta performed well with a quarterfinal finish in eMLS League Series One Philadelphia. After an early exit at eMLS League Series Two Portland, Doolsta found himself in 10th place in the eMLS standings. Meanwhile, i9ibbs sat in 22nd place in eMLS before the season was paused. He was set to enter the eMLS Cup Last Chance Qualifier bracket against Orlando City’s FIFA Abe. Doolsta and i9ibbs faced off at eMLS League Series Two Portland, with the match ending in a 1-1 draw.
