United Estonia beat Team Infused 3-1 to win CSGO ESL UK Premiership Grand Final

Underdogs United Estonia won the grand final of the ESLUK CSGO Season 2 Premiership at MCM London Comic Con, beating Team Infused 3-1 to take the greater share of the £10,000 spoils.

Team Infused went into this best of 5 match as the clear favourites, and took the first game convincingly.
However, United Estonia dusted themselves down and took the front foot, making it 1-1 after winning the second game.
In the third game, Infused started off poorly, allowing Estonia to take a strong lead. Despite fighting back to make it 8-7 to Estonia, Infused couldn’t quite come back into the game, and Estonia ended up winning the second game 16-12.
It was a bit of a shock for spectators present – could United Estonia cause a bit of an upset and go on to defeat Team Infused?
Team Infused must have had a bit of a pep talk after game three, as they started incredibly brightly in game four, going 4-0 up straight away.
They allowed Estonia back into the game however, who caught up to make it 8-7 to Team Infused.
Infused extended their lead to 13-8 but Estonia clawed themselves back into it. They drew level at 14-14, then went on to win the next two rounds, taking the fourth game – and the match – at 16-14.
This was United Estonia’s first appearance at an offline event, and they performed well considering their new playing environment.
“We’re ecstatic to win. People thought we were underdogs because they haven’t seen us play,” United Estonia coach Alex told eSports News UK.
“United Estonia has been running for a while, we’ve been in ESL for two years and never before made it to LAN. A lot of people in the scene called us onliners and things like that, but now we’ve come to LAN and showed that we can play against the UK’s best.”
Check out our full interview with Alex here:

United Estonia a mix team consisting of three Estonians, one of which lives and works in the UK, and two UK players. The team only plays together in the ESL official matches, with the two UK players playing in a separate team, and the other three play in an Estonian team called OnlineBOTS.
In the semi-finals, Infused beat Choke Gaming 2-1, while United Estonia beat Xenex 2-0.
