FIFA 23: Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe? That speaks for and against the youngsters as cover stars

Kylian Mbappé as the cover star: If you take a look at the past FIFA releases, you can see that there was a lot of movement on the cover. From Cristiano Ronaldo to Marco Reus or Eden Hazard. Long gone are the days when Lionel Messi graced the cover.

Since FIFA 21, the cover boy has been Kylian Mbappé. The 2018 world champion is on track to become a future Ballon d’Or winner. Kylian Mbappé is also likely to start as a favorite for the FIFA 23 cover, but there are some aspects against the third consecutive cover with the France international.

Kylian Mbappé was hardly able to collect any plus points from football fans in the past season. The declining sympathy for PSG and the new mega contract, which gives Kylian Mbappé a say in team formation, transfers and coach selection, make it doubtful that Kylian Mbappé will land on the cover of FIFA 23 again.

Erling Haaland as cover star: The closest competitor for the FIFA 23 cover is likely to be Manchester City newcomer Erling Haaland. The “breaker with the baby face” has been able to collect similarly impressive scorer points as Kylian Mbappé in the past three years. His move to the Premier League also gives Erling Haaland an even bigger stage to show off his skills. Both players already have endorsement deals with EA.
