PES 2021 is just a few weeks away, and although the Konmai title is just a “Season Update” on PES 2020, there’s plenty to get excited about.

That has just levelled up with Cristiano Ronaldo joining Lionel Messi on the cover of PES 2021 – the first time the two GOATs grace the cover of a game together.

Manchester United’s Rashford is still just 22, and has netted over 40 Premier League goals for his boyhood club, and has just come off the back with his best goalscoring season with 22 goals in all competitions.

As for Davies, the 19-year-old lifted the Champions League with Bayern Munich just yesterday, capping off a treble winning season for the Bavarians.
