Mbappé, who’s won the World Cup as well as the French league title with his club, Paris Saint-Germain, said:

“Being on the cover of FIFA is a dream come true. From my time at Bondy to Clairefontaine to the World Cup, this marks another big milestone. I’ve been playing this game since I was a kid and I am honoured to represent a whole new generation of footballers and be in the same group as many other amazing footballers who I now share this honour with.”

That’s a quote that’s obviously gone through layers of marketing before hitting the FIFA 21 press release, but Mbappé is genuinly a FIFA fan. Explaining his famous crossed arms celebration in 2018, the wonderkid said he stole the look from his brother, Ethan, who did it after scoring a goal playing FIFA.
