Nenad Stojkovic of Cleveland, Ohio was crowned FIFA Interactive World Champion 2010 after besting all comers in Barcelona, Spain this past weekend. Stojkovic defeated Ayhan Altundag of Germany 2-1 at Port Olympic on Saturday earning the title in front of 11,000 spectators. In addition to being crowned the FIWC10 Champion, Stojkovic also received $20,000 dollars. Not bad...

Said Nenad: “Two days ago, I was dreaming I could make it and now that I have succeeded, I can say this is probably the happiest day in my entire life. During the final, I tried to remain calm and I did not want to celebrate my goals on stage. My opponent was really good. This is amazing. It is worth being here but please do invite me as the winner next year as the qualifiers are too difficult!”
He's on to something there, because this time around
qualification started with more than 775,000 players. There were 10 Live Qualifier Events that took place around the globe including South Africa, Denmark, Brazil, Japan and Australia, spread over seven months. The Grand Final marked the end of the sixth and most successful FIFA Interactive World Cup to date.
