NiKo to miss IEM Sydney day two
Nikola “NiKo” Kovac will not take part in Day 2 of IEM Sydney, after being unsuccessful in securing a visa to Australia.
After having missed the first day along with Dauren “AdreN” Kystaubayev, FaZe Clan's coach Janko “YNk” Paunović and Karlo “USTILO” Pivac, most known for his time at Renegades, will stand in for the duo.
Contrary to AdreN, who will be able to participate on day two, seeing as the Kazakh secured a visa yesterday, the Bosnian will possibly miss the entire tournament if his visa issues are not sorted out quickly.
The absence of 2 of their star players did not dampen the spirits of FaZe who routed through a 16-5 win on Dust 2 over Locals Chiefs to secure an upper brackets Semi Finals against the North Americans of NRG tomorrow.
*UPDATE: NiKo revealed on its Twitter he was not able to secure a visa as of yet.
