As per a ESPN report, he represented XBUYER TEAM against Kunisports but “Enigma” flattered to deceive as it was apparent that playing with a mask on was not easy. He also had to change his footwear as they he was struggling to play with them.
XBUYER TEAM were beaten 1-0 but social media is still abuzz about his identity. Pique, as per ESPN, said that he will not reveal Enigma’s identity, adding that only a “select few” knew who it was while his own teammates were also kept in the dark
