World Cup champion Alex Morgan is on another cover, but this one she might not have ever expected.

Morgan, along with Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, are the first two women to ever be featured on the cover of the FIFA video game. Both will appear alongside Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in each one’s respective country for this upcoming edition of ‘FIFA 16.’

So why add the girls to the cover this year? It’s the first edition of the game that will feature women’s teams. There will be 12 in all, including England, U.S.A., and Canada.

“It is an incredible honour to be one of the first women featured on the cover of EA Sports Fifa,” said Morgan, who is the best paid player in women’s football.

“I know people all over the world play this game and I’m really excited that Fifa 2016 is putting such an important spotlight on women’s soccer.”
