Then played as a substitute Mitch "Boris" Voorspoelswho have favourited Support Role. Boris should still be known to the fans under the name Krepo as a player and analyst / commentator. Boris now works as a coach for FC Schalke 04 and as a substitute for emergencies.
That such an emergency would occur on the first match day was certainly not planned and so one could assume a clear advantage for the opposing team Roccat, who competed with their entire team.
Nevertheless, the Schalke team prevailed and secured victory with a tactically clean match and good team fights for Baron Nashor. mascot Erwin in the studio was definitely extremely happy.
