I heard rumors earlier today that Rooney wouldn’t feature on this years FIFA cover photo, but to be honest didn’t want to speculate until I found out they were true or false.

After watching EA’s live FIFA cover announcement it appear’s these rumors where true as Lionel Messi has taken over Rooney’s 7 year running center spot on the front of the FIFA 13 box.

Flanking him are Joe Hart and Alex Chamberlain, check out the full live stream video for all of the information, I warn you it’s a tad bit boring, skip to about 20 minutes for the image and news on the cover.
