Between the EMEA Masters finals and the LEC Season Finals in Montpellier, many may have been inattentive to interviews or other activities. However, this was not the case, as many were very attentive and could learn firsthand news that, without a doubt, reassured Fnatic fans and the LoL community in general.
Oscar “Oscarinin” Muños confirmed that he is recovering from his hand injury and will undoubtedly be part of Fnatic’s starting lineup at Worlds 2023.
While it is true that we all expected to confirm this news with the player on the servers, either in practice or in an official scrim, the player himself was in charge of confirming it through a Spanish stream of the LVP.
Oscarinin confirms he will be ready to play Worlds 2023 with Fnatic
Through the official LVP stream at the LEC Season Finals 2023 finals in Montpellier, Oscarinin confirmed that he will play Worlds 2023 with Fnatic.

Recall that the Spanish top laner injured his right hand and had to undergo surgery. However, both the player and Fnatic expect the player to be fully ready to return before Worlds 2023.
Also, Worlds 2023 is still a little less than a month away, so Oscarinin has time to recover from his operation fully. However, the fact is not only to recover, but he has to play again and have the ideal skill and mechanics this type of competition requires.
On the other hand, in the interviews in Montpellier, we could also notice that, although Oscarinin was happy about Fnatic’s victory over MAD Lions to qualify for the Grand Final against G2 Esports, he also felt some sadness about not being able to be with the team. According to Oscarinin, it “destroyed” him to want to be there playing and leading Fnatic to Grand Final qualification.
Oscarinin hopes to come back stronger than ever
As mentioned, both Oscarinin and Fnatic expect the player to recover to play Worlds 2023 fully. Moreover, the team is confident that the Spaniard will come back stronger than ever to display his full potential in the season’s most important event.
Fnatic qualified for Worlds 2023 as the second seed in EMEA, so they will start the tournament from the Swiss Phase. Fnatic’s first match will be on October 19, and hopefully, they will be able to count on Oscarinin in the starting lineup. However, the team will have Martin “Wunder” Hansen as a substitute if he does not make it in time.
