Mohamed “KingCJ0” Alioune Diop, D.C. United’s eMLS professional, will represent North America in the 2021 FIFAe World Cup taking place in August. KingCJ0 won the North American World Cup Qualifier, the first major EA Sports FIFA tournament championship in his career, which qualified him to compete in the most prestigious worldwide FIFA tournament of the year.
KingCJ0 is the only American to qualify for the 2021 FIFAe World Cup, and only the fourth eMLS representative to ever qualify for the event. He’s excited to compete in the tournament and has high ambitions for himself.
“Words cannot describe what I’m feeling, as this is a life-long dream that not every FIFA player gets to accomplish.” KingCJ0, said. “Heading into the tournament, my goal is to win it all and represent the North American region to the best of my ability. I’m looking forward to testing myself against the world’s best and compete to become the FIFAe World Cup Champion!”
