Kylian Mbappé is FIFA 22 cover star, EA has confirmed.

The Paris Saint-Germain and France striker reprises his role as the coveted cover star of the popular football game following up from being last year’s model for FIFA 21.

“Being on back-to-back FIFA covers is amazing. I have a very special relationship with the game and look forward to enjoying FIFA 22 alongside all of you”, Mbappe said.

The news follows a disappointing display at this years Euro’s finals with Mbappe who many have adorned with the moniker “starboy” failing to live up to the lofty expectations.

The prolific speedster coming off a 27 goal league campaign failed to register a single goal during the tournament and was ultimately dumped out of the competition after Mbappe himself missed the deciding penalty against Switzerland in the round of 16.

Regardless Mbappe remains the future of football and the cover proves it. EA is set to release its reveal trailer for the upcoming FIFA 22, July 11th at 4.30pm UK time, on YouTube
