Spain won another major trophy when Alfonso Ramos was crowned FIFA Interactive World Cup 2012 champion, to become the first two-times winner of the event.

The 2008 champion defeated 2009 FIWC champion Bruce Grannec of France in a penalty shootout after neither player could break the deadlock.

Ramos wins $20,000 and a trip to the next Ballon d'Or Gala after beating out a field of more than 1.3million participants.

"“When I won in 2008 I think there were maybe 100,000 players and now it's over a million. It’s become so very hard." Ramos told FIFA.com.

The FIWC Grand Final was staged in the Jumeirah Resort in Dubai by FIFA and Presenting Partners EA SPORTS and Sony PlayStation, with FIFA World Cup winners Christian Karembeu and Luca Toni special guests.

The final three-day stage of the competition was streamed live on FIFA.com for the very first time and also on The World Game via the FIFA TV YouTube channel.
