…But it’s probably not who you think it is!
On the North American cover for EA Sports’ FIFA 11, Mexican starlet Carlos Vela — donning the new Arsenal home kit — will be appearing alongside US national player Landon Donovan and Real Madrid’s Kaka.
FIFA 11’s box art is designed to feature local talent for the various regions the game is released in. As the NTSC version will be for Canada, the US and Mexico, Donovan and Vela were chosen as the best representatives of the continent. Some have argued that Manchester United’s new singing Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez was a better choice than Vela; of course, you won’t be hearing that opinion here!
