Marco Reus is the FIFA 17 cover star

Marco Reus, the Bourissia Dortmund player will be the cover star of FIFA 17.

Fans were given a chance to vote between James Rodriguez of Real Madrid C.F., Anthony Martial of Manchester United, and Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC. There were over 3 million votes which is pretty impressive. FIFA senior producer Nick Channon said:

It is incredible to see how fans get behind their favourite player – Marco plays for a great club, is really fun to watch, and he is very popular in FIFA Ultimate Team, so it makes a lot of sense that the fans picked him.

While Reus added:

I’m honoured to join a very distinguished group of footballers to appear on the cover of FIFA. Most of all I am humbled that the fans have chosen me, and I will strive to make them proud with my performance on the pitch.

FIFA 17 will be available in September.
