Lionel Messi is the FIFA cover star for the third year in a row, EA announced today.
The Barcelona forward, who this week won the Golden Ball for the best player at the 2014 World Cup as his Argentina side were beaten in the final by Germany, is the only player featured on the cover of FIFA 15.
EA notes it’s actually the fourth consecutive time Messi has appeared on the cover of a FIFA game. The first was FIFA Street, followed by FIFA 13, FIFA 14 and now FIFA 15.
FIFA 15 goes on sale from September 25 in Australia and September 26 in New Zealand. It will be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
