EA have announced who will be on the cover of the upcoming FIFA 21 – Kylian Mbappé. Mbappé represents the next generation of great footballers. In addition to his world class talent, he also embodies the spirit of the global FIFA community through his dedication to growing the culture of football and connecting the beautiful game with millions around the world.
The new FIFA 21 cover star has scored World Cup-winning goals, won league titles, was named Golden Boy in 2017, and won Ligue 1 Player of The Year at the age of 20. He signed his first professional contract in 2016.

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.
