FIFA Soccer 2005 Cover Athletes Announced

Electronic Arts has revealed that Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Morientes, and Oswaldo Sanchez will serve as the North American spokesmen for FIFA Soccer 2005, scheduled for release this fall. The FIFA Soccer franchise, celebrating its 11th season this year, introduces Sanchez and the entire 18-team Mexican League for the first time to the game.

"Becoming a FIFA cover athlete is an incredible honor," said Sanchez, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico. "I love EA SPORTS, especially the FIFA franchise. To think that my likeness is in the game, and that all the great teams from the Mexican League are now available, is tremendous."

All three players will appear on packaging and merchandising for FIFA Soccer 2005 in North America while Patrick Viera will replace Sanchez in the European territories. Shevchenko was the leading scorer for the Italian series A champions AC Milan last year. Spanish born Morientes is a three-time Champions League winner playing for Real Madrid and has scored more than 100 goals since joining the club in 1997. Sanchez, an emerging superstar in the Mexican league, currently serves as the captain of 10-time national champion Chivas.
