Canada Cup is finishing up today, but before we get to the singles brackets, we have some of the top moments from the epic 5v5 team battle.

Players from all over the world are in attendance, and have broken off to represent their respective parts of the globe.

Fifteen Japanese players split into three separate teams, and wound up filling out the entire top three of the team bracket.

We do have a few clips from Team Europe and Team America in addition to the Japanese domination.

Our first highlight features none other than CYG|Daigo Umehara and his Guile as he takes on DouyuTV|Xiao Hai and his Cammy.

Trying to field Xiao Hai's onslaught of Cammy offense, Daigo answers an EX dive kick with an incredible Critical Art to turn the tides and help take the round.

Facing elimination, PG|Punk held his team's tournament life on his shoulders as he tried to stay alive against Mouz|Problem X. In step with what he's known for, Punk makes a clutch confirm to take the set to the next round.

Next we visit RB|Luffy's absolute onslaught on CO|Go1's Menat.

Watch as Luffy makes an absolutely amazing confirm from light kick... then lose all hope as you see Ibuki nab a target combo into a demoralizing V-Trigger KO).

Epsilon|Takamurahas been developing his Ken quite nicely over this last season, and shows off his progress with this series of amazing blocks topped off with a clutch combo.

GW|Eita is known for incredibly bold meaty invincible moves on his opponent's wake up, so it was especially striking to see CO|Dogura pull off "the Eita" on Eita.

DNG|Itazan's Spinning Pile Driver with Zangief at this moment against Dogura's Urien was unbelievable.

YouDeal|Yukadon pulls off yet another pair of fresh mix ups from Ibuki, who we'd thought we'd seen it all from.
