Kylian Mbappe isn't on that cursed EA Sports FC cover. In fact, the French forward is just about the only player who isn't. 

His opposite at Manchester City, Erling Haaland, is front and centre of the game. The likes of Marcus Rashford, Vinicius Jr, Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka have all made  the front of the game, with legends like Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldinho and David Beckham getting a spot there, too. Women's stars like Sam Kerr, Marta and Leah Williamson are there. Even Pele and Johan Cruyff, who are both no longer with us, have made the lineup.
