Esports Insider says: This is an odd but interesting one as we’ve precious little information to go on beyond the fact that eFootball.Pro and KONAMI have partnered up and will be launching a global esports competition. The release ends by stating more information will be unveiled soon, so we’ll keep tabs on this one and give more information as soon as it drops. Esports company eFootball.Pro and the developer behind the Pro Evolution franchise, KONAMI, have reached an agreement to create an esports competition. The press release stated that ‘the league will be international and broadcasted all around the world’. Gerard Piqué, eFootball.Pro President and FC Barcelona player, said of the announcement: “The goal is to drive all that makes traditional football the king of sports, towards electronic football, towards eSports’. The company (eFootball.Pro) was briefly in the esports spotlight some months back after news broke of its formation and the fact that it has Spanish international and Barca player Gerard Piqué as its President. The company was seeking professionals with a knowledge of both esports and football across a variety of roles in March, from business development to content creation, though this is the only news we’ve heard since that time.

Powered by Firework The Indian cricket team has sen some talented youthful entries in recent times. Young talents from all over the country have cemented their spots in the squad with brilliant performances, and have filled spots left vacant by the previous stalwarts of the team who have now hung up their boots. But what about this young generation of cricketers’ relation with the legends of the bygone decade? Yuvraj Singh is noticing a lack of respect.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ESPNcricinfo/AFPThe former international cricketer joined up with Rohit Sharma for a live session on Instagram, where the former and current icons of the team exchanged words on the current scenario of Indian cricket, and even their daily lives amidst the nationwide lock down due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic.Speaking on how things have changed in the Men in Blue’s dressing room since Yuvraj’s retirement, the former all rounder worded in about the respect youngsters had for the seniors in the past few years, indicating that the lack of social media back then was a positive factor.Advertisement “I felt when I came into the team or when you (Rohit) came into the team. Our seniors were very disciplined. Obviously there was no social media so there were no distractions,” Yuvi said in the conversation.“There was a certain behaviour that we boys had to carry, how they talk to people, how they talk to media. Because they were the ambassadors of the game and India,” the 38 year old added.Advertisement However, in the current Indian team, Rohit himself, along with the captain Virat Kohli belong from the previous generation, and the rest of the first team squad are all youngsters, who according to Yuvraj, don’t show the due respect their seniors like their previous generation of players used to.“I just feel there are very fewer guys to look up to and I feel that a sense of respect towards seniors, that has become a thin line now,” he added.Again, Yuvraj brought in the topic of social media, and what might be having a detrimental effect on the generation gap in the team.“I think juniors, because of social media, party scenes, these things, we could not even think about that in our time. Because we had that fear that if we do some mistake our senior will tell us that do not do this, this is not right,” the former cricketer concluded.Also read-This cricketer’s World Cup final jersey just raised Rs. 6,073,818 in fight against Coronavirus!Indian runner Murali Gavit stuck in Kenya due to travel restrictions Advertisement
