FIFA 19: Hardly anyone wants Cristiano Ronaldo to be the cover star again

Are you paying attention, EA Sports?

He may be one of the greatest footballers around but it seems FIFA 18 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t as adored as you’d think.

In fact, when Dream Team did a poll to find out who you wanted as the FIFA 19 cover star, the 33-year-old Real Madrid ace came dead last.

So, who came top of the list?

Step forward Harry Kane, who beat the likes of David de Gea, Neymar, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe to be the Dream Team community’s FIFA 19 cover star of choice.

Could we see an Englishman on the FIFA cover this year?

Now, there’s a couple of catches, here.

One name who arguably should have been on that list is Mohammed Salah, who’s been a sensation since signing for Liverpool.

In fact, a poll from FIFA site FP revealed a whopping 77 per cent of FIFA players want the Egyptian to be FIFA 19’s poster boy.

But before you get excited about the prospect of another cover star, there’s another factor to take into account.

We’re almost certain that Ronaldo would have signed a multi-title deal.

After all, Ronaldo is a brand – and being on the cover of the world’s most popular football game will only strengthen that.

We’ll likely see the cover star announced in June – ahead of E3 – in the EA Showcase. It’ll also be the first time we see the trailer, using the in-game Frostbite engine.
