Burnaby’s Christine Sinclair Joins Lionel Messi On FIFA 16 Canadian Cover

Team Canada’s soccer captain and Burnaby native Christine Sinclair, will be featured on the Canadian cover of “FIFA 16” with Barcelona’s superstar Lionel Messi.

EA Sports revealed earlier this year that the 2016 version of the game would feature 12 women’s national teams for the first time in the history of the franchise. EA also confirmed Sinclair would be among one of the first women to appear on the cover of the hit video game.

Alex Morgan will join Messi on the American cover, and Steph Catley will join Messi on the Australian cover.
