Wales upset England in the Rocket League Open final ©ITG

Wales were on fire during their Rocket League open grand final as they swept England to seal the first Commonwealth Esports Championships at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

England’s attack was completely suffocated during the best of five series, causing the hosts to be unable to find the goal in approximately 13 in-game minutes across the three games.

The achievement was a grand farewell to Wales’ Tadpole, who is retiring as a player and plans to become a coach.

Initially, England started the better of the two sides as they took an early 1-0 lead in the first game.

However, Wales, were unbothered and proceeded to net three goals to claim their first win.

They followed it with a stunning defensive display in the second game to edge the tie 1-0.

England’s frustration at their opponent’s resilience at the back was clear and it did not stop as Tadpole scored to put Wales on course in the championship match.

Another two goals for Wales all-but confirmed the title, with the match ending 3-1 after a late consolation.
