For the first time ever, FIFA will feature women's teams, with FIFA 16 boasting twelve playable international squads. To celebrate this, EA Sports has revealed that Women's World Cup winner Alex Morgan will be joining Lionel Messi on the cover of the upcoming soccer sim in the US.

Morgan helped guide the USA to victory in this year's tournament, and she's generally seen as one of the nation's biggest footballing stars. What's more, she actually helped with the development of the release, as she was used for motion capture purposes.

It's perhaps a promising sign of progress for women's football, and with the publisher putting an emphasis on the inclusion of women's teams in this year's title, it's great to see EA Sports pushing this fact to the front of the box.
