kNgV- won't have to miss any more American events
Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe announced earlier today that his American visa had been approved, meaning he will be able to participate in events held in the US once more.
Visto americano aprovado!! Feliz demais de poder fazer o que eu amo ... agora em qualquer lugar do mundo!!— Vito Giuseppe (@kngvito) August 2, 2019
kNgV- was originally denied entrance into the United States back in 2017 when it was uncovered that he was being paid by Immortals while in the country on a tourist visa. Since then, the Brazilian has struggled to get an American visa and had to miss out on some major tournaments including the ELEAGUE Major Boston, and more recently the regular season of ESL Pro League Season 9.
His lack of an American visa had been a major detriment to his career in more ways than just missing events, as at the end of 2018 it was rumored that kNgV- would be Tarik "tarik" Celik's replacement on MIBR. However, the deal ultimately fell through due to visa complications.
MIBR now find themselves looking for a new fifth once again following Marcelo "coldzera" David's departure from the roster. Jarek "DeKay" Lewis of Dexerto has already reported that kNgV- is in talks with MIBR as a potential new fifth for the Brazilians and his shiny new American visa will make this move much more likely.
