Jordan Henderson has been named as the co-cover athlete for FIFA 16 in the UK.

He was chosen by public vote to star on the game cover alongside Lionel Messi.

The 25-year-old midfielder was named as Liverpool’s new captain earlier today.

Other regional cover vote winners include the following, each starring alongside Messi:

  • Australia: Stephanie Catley and one more athlete to be revealed on August 13.
  • Mexico – Marco Fabián
  • France: Antoine Griezmann
  • Latin America: Juan Cuadrado
  • Japan: Shinji Kagawa in his Borussia Dortmund kit.
  • Global Cover: Lionel Messi

EA Sports announced in May FIFA 16 players will be able to choose from 12 Women’s National Teams when playing the football title. The firm also released rather detailed gameplay features on the title during E3 2015.

FIFA 16 will be available on September 26 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3.
