El Shaarawy Makes Italy Front Cover

Stephan Kareem El Shaarawy has been announced as the face of the Italian FIFA 14 front cover, and will join alongside Barcelona star Lionel Messi. The game’s cover for each region of the world, (and sometimes country’s) is completely different, with various footballers covering each of the respected territory or country.

In this case, AC Milan and Italy international El Shaarawy will become the face for this years installment when it launches in September. The man himself seems to be over the moon at making his nation’s cover, and this is what he had to say:

Being on the cover of FIFA 14, alongside a football great like Leo Messi, fills me with pride, not only as a gamer but also as a fan of the greatest sport in the world”. He also said that “Being able to represent the best-selling football game in Italy is beautiful and exciting. I can’t wait to challenge my friends and teammates.

Daniele Siciliano who’s the Marketing Manager at Electronic Arts Italia said:

we immediately thought of Stephan when we evaluated who could represent the new FIFA 14 in Italy and alongside Lionel Messi, El Shaarawy’s exuberance, freshness and immense potential best expresses the characteristics of a game like FIFA 14. We are ready to once again conquer the heart and attention of the many fans in Italy. We are honoured that El Shaarawy has joined the FIFA 14 team.
