UK player roster and casting talent announced ahead of Overwatch World Cup Paris group stage

The final 2018 Overwatch World Cup group stage is fast approaching – and a host of UK talent is ready to rock Paris.
Since the initial 7 Lions/Team UK Overwatch roster announcement earlier in the summer, it looks like the final six players and sub have been finalised.
The Team UK roster is as follows:

  • Christopher “ChrisTFer” Graham
  • Eoghan “Smex” O’Neill
  • Isaac “Boombox” Charles
  • Harrison “Kruise” Pond
  • Michael “MikeyA” Adams
  • Finley “Kyb” Adisi
  • Kai “KSP” Collins (substitute)

The UK are one of six teams in the Paris group stage, the others being France, Germany, Poland, Italy and the Netherlands.
They are competing for a place in the last eight at Blizzcon in November. Six of those positions have already been claimed in the earlier group stages by South Korea, Finland, the USA, Canada, China, and Australia.
Matches in the Paris group stage take place from September 21st to 23rd.
Also, in terms of casters for the Paris group stage, there are four from the UK:

  • Thomas “Tridd” Underwood
  • Derry “Dezachu” Holt
  • Jack “Jaws” Wright
  • Harry “LegDay” Pollitt

These join the likes of Soe Gschwind-Penski, Malik Forté, Andrew “ZP” Rush and Jake Lyon.
Blizzard ran through the others team rosters, revealed the casting talent and the schedule in a post here.
Last year, the UK made it to the quarter finals in the Overwatch World Cup, where they were defeated 3-0 by Sweden.
And in the separate Overwatch League, London Spitfire took the crown back in July.
