Two months before the next Overwatch World Cup, Team USA introduced the supports and shields of its Final Seven.
USA fans, rejoice! Team USA introduced four players of its Final 7 - the tank and support duos. Matthew “super” DeLisi and Indy “Space” Halpern will handle the frontline. Keeping them safe, Grant “moth” Espe and Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty form the support duo.
Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty is the oldest member of Team USA so far, with two World Cups under his belt. The Houston Outlaws player is a flex healer, mostly known for his Zenyatta and Ana plays. He will play alongside Grant “moth” Espe, San Francisco Shock’s main healer. Espe is a Lucio main and will have the opportunity to prove his skills with the rise of Lucio’s popularity in the 2-2-2 meta. Interestingly, both Flaherty and Espe played with one another in the 2018 Overwatch World Cup.
Indy “Space” Halpern signs up for his second year as off-tank for Team USA. The Los Angeles Valiant player shines as D.Va and will assist Matthew “super” DeLisi, the main tank. It is the first time DeLisi joins the Final 7 of Team USA.
On July 29th, Team USA introduced its 12-man roster:
- Austin “Muma” Wilmot
- Matthew “super” DeLisi
- Russell “FCTFCT” Campbell
- Indy “Space” Halpern
- Dante "Danteh" Cruz
- Corey "Corey" Nigra
- Jay “sinatraa” Won
- Kyle "KSF" Frandanisa
- João Pedro "Hydration" Goes Telles
- Nikola "sleepy" Andrews
- Grant "moth" Espe
- Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty
There are three spots left in the US Final 7. Who of Cruz, Nigra, Won, Frandanisa or Hydration will be on stage for the Overwatch World Cup 2020? Team USA is set to announce their picks DPS shortly.
