Every year FIFA fans ask themselves the same question: Which player will appear on the cover of the latest FIFA branch? Last year, Kylian Mbappé appeared on the cover of FIFA 21. For the part of FIFA still in use, French superstar Kylian Mbappé appeared on the cover and even appeared in 3 different FIFA versions with varying variants of cover. But who will we see in the FIFA 22 game case? FUTFINE tells you which candidates are suitable.
We are curious whether Mbappé will create a cover dynasty like Lionel Messi, who has proudly appeared on the FIFA cover four times in a row. Or will new stars appear on the cover this time? We look at possible candidates.
When will the cover star be announced? So far, there is no official information about FIFA 22. Perhaps we will learn more about the cover of FIFA 22 at the “EA Play Live” event on July 22, and this is where the new FIFA section will finally appear.
Who can be on the cover of FIFA 22?
What kind of candidates are they? Let’s look at the well-known players in international football and tell you how likely it is to become a FIFA 22 cover star.
Kylian Mbappé has not lost any charm. He has scored an impressive 42 goals in 47 games for Paris Saint-Germain, even though the Frenchman did not perform in the European Championship. So smoothly. His participation as a cover star is likely to be extended, and we will see Mbappé on the cover of FIFA 22 again.
Robert Lewandowski scored 41 goals in the past Bundesliga season-a record! In December 2020, he was also named the World Player of Football. Therefore, it makes sense that the best striker in the world should be a candidate for the cover of FIFA. However, this seems extremely unlikely because Bayern Football Club has partnered with Konami and FIFA’s competitor PES.
Therefore, Lewandowski is unlikely to become a cover star.
Harland was the absolute scorer last year and quickly became known for his goals and penetration. The BVB striker is a popular figure on the cover of FIFA 22. It is likely to be selected by EA mainly because the developer has placed the young Norwegian in a prominent position in FIFA 21 and has shown him in many menus and trailers.
Ronaldo was on FIFA 18 and FIFA 19 when he was still a Real Madrid player. At the same time, Ronaldo is employed by Juventus Turin, which is the problem. Because for Juventus, Turin EA will again lack a license in the next FIFA section, so the club is called Piemonte Calcio in FIFA.
Although Ronaldo will appear in FIFA, the 35-year-old player may not find a cover star job due to license issues.
Messi has been on the cover from FIFA 13 to FIFA 16, becoming the most comprehensive FIFA cover. However, it seems unlikely to appear as a FIFA 22 cover star because the EA trend seems more inclined to top young talents.
No Premier League player appeared on the cover of FIFA for a long time. The last time Wayne Rooney did it for FIFA 10. So it is likely that EA will re-examine England’s top league and Marcus Rashford’s final meteor choice.
More candidates for FIFA 22 cover
EA focuses on young players: In recent years, young superstars have played an increasingly important role in FIFA. For example, Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappé, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joao Felix, the FIFA series ambassadors, and the entire FIFA. Therefore, these players should not be excluded from the FIFA 22 cover.
