jkaem: "I expect us and G2 in semis"

The last interview from ESL One Cologne 2016's day one is with Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad, who talked about FaZe upsetting fnatic and the group overall and gave us a few predictions.

FaZe finished day one at ESL One Cologne 2016 with the only big upset so far, as they came out on top of a 30-round battle on Dust2 versus fnatic.

Shortly after the day came to a close we caught up with Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad, who talked about the match in detail, shared his thoughts on who he believes will go through and more:

You can find the rest of HLTV.org's videos by going to our YouTube channel here.

We have also conducted a video interview with Astralis' Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz and Virtus.pro's Jarosław "⁠pashaBiceps⁠" Jarząbkowski, which you can watch here and here.

fnatic will beat g2. faze all players 20+kills...that never really happens once in a lifetime gl tommorow
2016-07-06 02:33
love how all these people are so sensitive about this statement. People talk about being 'realistic,' but FaZe does have a chance in this group, although they are the underdog of all 4 teams, they can definitely beat this competition if things work out for them. Also, there's no reason he should not believe in his own team. They need to be confident in themselves in order to accomplish anything.
