FIFA 16 Cover Stars Revealed

By Andy Mills, 1 year ago
Very few players in football are loved around the world. Lionel Messi is arguably one of them so it makes sense that he graces the cover of the FIFA franchise worldwide each year. However in different regions, different players are chosen to star alongside him, whether by EA or by popular vote, and FIFA 16 is no different. With women's football coming to this year's installment, it's nice to see women star in a few regions.
