Kylian Mbappe confirmed as cover athlete for FIFA 22

Kylian Mbappe has been chosen once again as the cover star of FIFA.

In 2022’s edition, the French superstar will be on the front cover of the game, making it a consecutive time.

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

Mbappe suffered a poor Euro 2020 campaign, failing to score a goal and missing a vital penalty.

But the world knows too well his ability, and that there will surely be more to come from him next season for Paris Saint-Germain.

EA Sports expressed their delight at having the Ligue 1 forward back for the upcoming game.
