Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated world football and odds lines for the best part of the last two decades, as the evergreen Argentine and Portuguese go blow-for-blow in their quest to be remembered as the greatest player that ever lived. However, even for them, father time will eventually come knocking, and betting tipsters will begin to back against them. Waiting in the wings is a new breed of young strikers, who all want to step out of the shadows of the men that went before them. Euro 2020 has been a showcase for such players, who want to deliver results for the fans who backed their odds of winning the Euros, even as Ronaldo once again led the way on the goal-scoring front.

Here are just some of them.

Kylian Mbappé

At the age of just 22, this French megastar has already achieved something that neither Messi nor Ronaldo have ever managed — winning the World Cup.

He has been terrorizing defenses at Euro 2020 this summer, but he is not from the same mold as the two greats, often turning into more of a provider rather than an out-and-out goal-getter. That could change as he develops his game and makes his expected move to Real Madrid.

Romelu Lukaku

At 28 years of age, this Belgian powerhouse has been around for a long time but has truly found his place in the footballing world at Inter Milan, who he helped to win the Serie A title last season.

He has transitioned that form over into his national team performances and could be a man whose stats consistently start matching up to those of Messi and Ronaldo.

Erling Haaland

The fact that Haaland’s Norwegian national side are not world-beaters actually adds to his value, because clubs don’t have to worry about injuries occurring while he’s on international duty.

Despite this silver lining, he will no doubt be gutted at having had to spectate Euro 2020 and will be looking for a huge summer move to make up for it. If he is signed by a team with the ability to provide him with multiple chances per game, then Haaland could easily be the next big contender for the Ballon d’Or.

Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
