NASHVILLE – This week, we’re bringing you an eMLS matchup that hits close to home for our eMLS player.
In lieu of our scheduled match at Nissan Stadium, Nashville SC eMLS athlete Cormac “Doolsta” Dooley will take on his former club’s new eMLS player, Philadelphia Union’s Macissé “CisseSZN” Diop in a EA Sports FIFA 20 clash presented by WGU Tennessee this Saturday at Noon 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 Saturday.
Doolsta and CisseSZN 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 at least 7 club players. The rest are up to the gamer’s discretion.
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. CisséSZN joined the Union after the 2020 season, so he has not faced Doolsta in eMLS play yet. However, the two did face off in the Union’s Open Tournament Final, which Doolsta won, earning him the chance to represent Philadelphia in the 2019 eMLS season. Doolsta did face Philadelphia’s 2020 eMLS athlete, Jay Ajayi, at League Series One, winning 9-1.
