Konami today revealed the cover athletes for this year’s installment of Pro Evolution Soccer, naming Barcelon’as Lionel Messi and Liverpool’s Fernando Torres the footballers in question.


FIFA 2010, Pro Evo’s direct competitor named their regional specific cover athletes earlier this month, with Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, and Sebastian Schweinsteiger the likely fan favorites, but Pro Evo decided that two athletes, for the entire globe, is well enough.

Maybe American citizens will never embrace football (soccer) the way the rest of the world does, but regardless, the games both Konami and EA churn out on a yearly basis are wonderful and the rivalry is refreshing when compared to Madden’s monopolization of the American football video game market.
