Kylian Mbappe Announced As FIFA 21 Cover Star

Kylian Mbappe Announced As FIFA 21 Cover Star

Kylian Mbappe will grace the front cover of FIFA 21, which is set to release on October 9.

Eden Hazard was the cover star for FIFA 20 last year and EA Sports have opted for a new face to pick up the mantle.

Mbappe is regarded as one of the world's best players at the age of 21 and is already a World Cup winner with France.

Reflecting on being chosen as the new cover star, Mbappe said: "Being on the cover of FIFA is a dream come true. 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 honored to represent a whole new generation of footballers and be in the same group as many other amazing footballers who I now share this honor with."

Three different editions of the game are available for pre-order and Mbappe will be on the cover of them all.
