SAN FRANCISCO - US women's soccer star Alex Morgan has scored a rare goal by being chosen to grace the cover of EA Sports' FIFA 16 video game, appearing alongside Argentine superstar Lionel Messi. Morgan was one of two women players chosen for the covers of the latest version of the game in North America, with Canadian skipper Christine Sinclair picked for the Canadian market. The decision to have a female presence on the cover comes as the best-selling game introduces women's teams for the first time. "It is an incredible honor to be one of the first women featured on the cover of EA Sports FIFA," Morgan said in a statement. "To share the cover with today's greatest player is surreal." Morgan was one of the stars of the USA's superb Women's World Cup triumph in Canada.
