Along with Morgan two other international soccer superstars will be featured on the cover.

Stephanie Catley from Australia’s national soccer team will appear on the Australian edition and Christine Sinclair from Canada will appear on Canada’s edition.

All three athletes are teammates for the Portland Thorns.

“As soon as we knew Women’s National Teams were joining FIFA 16, we immediately recognized that Christine and Alex would be the perfect cover athletes based on their accomplishments and what they represent for their respective countries and the sport of women’s soccer,” said David Pekush, Sr. Manager of North America Marketing for EA SPORTS. “They are exhilarating players and exude heart and courage on the pitch, and we are extremely proud to be working with them this year.”
