Meanwhile, 15-year-old Dane Anders "RBLZ_Anders" Vejrgang is racing from one FIFA 21 record to the next and is still unbeaten in the FUT Champions Weekend League after a whopping 510 games!
In the interview, coach Daniel "RBLZ_Daniel" Fehr talks about the youngster and the pressure Anders is under:
"Every little thing that doesn't go the way the community or other people would like is put on the gold scale and it often hails undifferentiated criticism."
With the two German eNational players Richard "RBLZ_Gaucho" Hormes and Umut "RBLZ_Umut" Gültekin, the team's squad is absolutely impressive. Fehr reveals in conversation what else can be taught to such top players:
"With this team, I am absolutely blessed as a coach - there is no question about that. Most of the coaching is pure analyses and mental preparation."
