w0nderful extinguish Turkish fire

The Ukrainian AWP’er was instrumental in NAVI’s Quarter-Final win at the PGL Copenhagen Major.

The third Quarter-Final of the Major in Copenhagen was expected to be a nail-biter, but Eternal Fire could not deliver on the same level, as we’ve seen in the first two stages of the Major.

NAVI picked Mirage as the first map of the day in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen. A superb first half saw Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen’s troops take a commanding 9-3 lead into the second half. At this point it had only been in-game leader Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, who had really showed up for the Turkish roster, who had a mountain to climb in the second half. But then 19-year-old Ali 'Wicadia' Haydar Yalçın woke up and started to find a way back for Eternal Fire. The biggest star of them all on ET, İsmailсan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş also chipped in which gave the Turks the momentum to equalize the score at 12-12.

Natus Vincere was not done though. Despite having to play under the pressure of being the direct replacement to Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyljev, 19-year-old Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov showed up huge for the team that he has supported since boyhood. The Ukrainian AWP’er delivered an outstanding map to carry NAVI to a 16-13 win in overtime with a 27-15 K-D scoreline.

Next up was Inferno, where Eternal Fire has had big success at the Major winning against GamerLegion, Vitality, and Virtus.pro. Against NAVI, the Turkish squad also looked like the best team, but somehow managed to lose several key rounds to allow NAVI to run away with the map and match. Again Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov played a key part in NAVI’s win, where he neutralized Özgür "woxic" Eker in the internal AWP duel and won several important rounds for Natus Vincere.

With the win, NAVI is ready for the Semi-Finals tomorrow, where they will face the winner of tonight’s match between MOUZ and G2.


NAVI - Eternal Fire 2-0 (16-13, 13-9)
