Above is the UK cover for FIFA 12 which features Man United star striker Wayne Rooney and Arsenal’s key midfielder Jack Wilshere. Rooney has been on the cover for 7 consecutive years, and he’s no push over at the game either; although because of his sponsorship he gets the new releases before everyone else and has time to practice. Jack Wilshere on the other hand should be extremely pleased to be gracing the cover of a FIFA title. Being an Arsenal fan I hope to hear about the 19 year old 2010/11 Arsenal player of the season beating Wayne Rooney in a game of FIFA. (Sorry, I’m not meant to be biased)
Rooney and Wilshere are not the only FIFA 12 cover stars; here are the stars for the rest of the world…
Spanish Cover: Gerard Piqué and Xabi Alonso
Australian Cover: Kaka, Rooney and Tim Cahill
Italian Cover: Rooney, Pazzini and Mexes
French Cover: Rooney, Benzema and Mexes
Russian Cover: Kaka and Berezutski
Global Cover: Rooney and Kaka
I personally feel that Nigeria should opt for its own FIFA 12 cover with John Mikel Obi and Peter Odemwingie to feature.
