The FIFA cover athlete has always been a fun topic for speculation by fans. Over the years, we have seen famous players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard, and Marco Reus appear on the front of the disc jacket.
However, EA has now revealed which player we can expect to see on the cover of FIFA 22, and it’s going to be a surprising pick for all football fans.
We’re going to see the return of Kylian Mbappe for the second year in a row on the cover of the upcoming FIFA 22.
The 22-year-old French player is one of football’s most prominent current names, and EA has noted on Twitter that they are honored to have him back on the cover. Mbappe plays as a forward for Paris Saint-Germain and the French National Team.
We have some other news about the game itself, as EA has stated that they will release the official FIFA 22 reveal trailer on July 11th. While they haven’t confirmed any details on what fans can hope to see from the trailer, EA has said that it will be “game-changing.”
It’ll be interesting to see if this year’s iteration of FIFA will be able to give players a genuinely revolutionary football experience and make up for the criticisms of FIFA 21’s lack of innovation.
Looks like EA is being very deliberate in timing the release of the new FIFA trailer, as it coincides with the long-running UEFA European Football Championship. The competition has had its fair share of dramatic matches and moments.
The England National Team made their way into the Euro championship final for the first time in their career. They will be facing off against Italy in a high-stakes match to take home the trophy, which will be pre-empted by the initial look at FIFA 22.
Fans will most likely see FIFA 22 and other EA sports games at EA Play’s More EA SPORTS! stream, which is going to air on July 20th. The event has promised a new look at the publisher’s biggest sports titles, so we can expect FIFA and Madden to make an appearance.
