EA Sports has today unveiled France and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé as its FIFA 22 cover star for the second year in a row.
The 22-year-old — whose recent penalty miss in a shoot-out against Switzerland saw Frace fall short at this summer’s Euro 2020 — is one of world football’s most exciting talents and to many is seen as representing the next generation of footballing stars.
Now gracing the FIFA cover for the second year in a row, Mbappé becomes only one of a few to earn back-to-back cover star status, alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Traditionally FIFA tends to drop across all consoles around October time, but more precise information regarding its release will be announced in due course.
