Atlético Madrid’s forward Antoine Griezmann will join Messi on the French FIFA 16 cover, that will be on the stores at September 24, for all platforms.
Griezmann began his career at Real Sociedad, where he spent five seasons before transferring to Atlético for €30 million. He has been a French youth international, having represented his country at under-19, under-20 and under-21 level. In 2010, he was part of the team that won the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship on home soil. He made his debut for the senior national team in 2014 and played at that year’s World Cup. The 24 year-old will grace the cover wearing his Atlético Madrid’s team kit and will share the spotlight with global cover athlete, Lionel Messi. Last year, there wasn’t a special cover for France.
Griezmann was the most voted player winning other three popular players:
Raphaël Varane – Real Madrid (Spain)
Antoine Griezmann – Atlético Madrid (Spain)
Alexandre Lacazette – Olympique Lyonnais (France)
Blaise Matuidi – Paris Saint-Germain (France)
