Alex Morgan’s already good 2015 is about to get even better.
Morgan will appear on the cover of the United States edition of EA SPORTS’ “FIFA 16,” the video studio announced Monday, according to FOX Sports. Morgan will become the first woman to appear on the cover of a “FIFA” game, appearing alongside Lionel Messi to break new ground in digital sports.

“It is an incredible honor to be one of the first women featured on the cover of EA SPORTS ‘FIFA,'” Morgan said. “I know people all over the world play this game and I’m really excited that ‘FIFA 16’ is putting such an important spotlight on women’s soccer. And now to share the cover with today’s greatest player is surreal.”
Christine Sinclair, captain and star of Canada’s women’s national team, will join Messi on her country’s version of the game.
Gamers can play as Morgan and Sinclair in FIFA ’16, as women’s national teams are included in the game for the first time.
Morgan’s latest cover story comes on the heels of a successful summer, in which she helped the U.S. women’s national team win the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. Morgan and the rest of her 24 teammates received their own individual Sports Illustrated covers after the victory.
The good times keep on rolling for Morgan and Team USA.
