Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has been revealed as the global cover star for FIFA 21.
The France international replaces Real Madrid star Eden Hazard, who was on the cover for the standard edition of the previous title in the series.
Mbappe described it as a “dream come true”, while creators EA Sports proclaimed the 21-year-old World Cup winner “the leader of the next generation”.
“Being on the cover of FIFA is a dream come true,” he said to the game company’s website.
“From my time at Bondy to Clairefontaine to the World Cup, this marks another big milestone.
“I’ve been playing this game since I was a kid and I am honoured to represent a whole new generation of footballers and be in the same group as many other amazing footballers who I now share this honour with.”
The game is scheduled to be released in October.
Mbappe scored 18 goals in 20 appearances in Ligue 1 in 2019-20 before the season was ended early due to the coronavirus pandemic, with PSG crowned champions on a points-per-game basis.
