EA's FIFA 16 Features Female Soccer Players

In May, EA announced that female soccer players will be included in the FIFA video games for the first time ever.

With that announcement and all of the recent talk about gender equality in soccer, FIFA has decided to make a small (but significant) change. For the first time in history, FIFA's video game will include women on the cover.

EA announced that U.S. Women's soccer player Alex Morgan will grace the cover, and Canada's Christine Sinclair will also be featured on a FIFA 16 cover.

See the gallery below for awesome photos of the soon-to-be FIFA video game cover girl:

The jerseys are white with boxy black numbers and letters, to go with neon yellow socks that give way to electric blue cleats.
