Rooney on the bench

Manchester United and England talisman Wayne Rooney has been dropped from the UK cover of FIFA 13. It’ll be the first time in seven years that a FIFA game has launched without the striker on the box.

Instead, he’ll be replaced by Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, Manchester City keeper Joe Hart, and, er, Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

You’ll be able to find Hart’s furrowed brow on store shelves from 28th September. A demo’s due out on 11th September.

They always throw a pretty much unproven English player onto the cover, like last year they had er... what's his name. Also from Arsenal. See, forgotten already.

Anyway I'm just glad I don't have Rooney's ugly mug looking at me every time I change discs.

Fifa 13 will be good this year I'm sure of it. Wayne Rooney was on the cover enough anyway.
