Jordan Henderson Is Going To Be On The Cover Of FIFA 16 With Leo Messi

And you can't complain about it because he was selected by popular vote.

Jordan Henderson is the new cover star of FIFA 16. The Liverpool midfielder will feature alongside Lionel Messi on the front of the latest game in the popular series.

EA Sports

The game isn't due to be released until the end of September, but it has been confirmed by EA Sports that Henderson is going to be on the cover.

Leo Messi is on the front of every edition of the game around the world, but is accompanied by different players depending on the area of release.

Juan Cuadrado won the Latin America vote, while Antoine Griezmann won in France, and Shinji Kagawa won in Japan.

The vote in the UK was between Thibaut Courtois, Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Jordan Henderson.

Jordan Henderson fought off competition from his England teammate Harry Kane, and will be the first Liverpool player to ever appear on the cover of EA Sports' FIFA franchise.

And as if being on the cover of FIFA 16 was already enough to put Hendo in a good mood, he was also confirmed as Liverpool captain today.

Biggest honour of my career so far being captain of this great football club. Thank you for all your support #YNWA

He's probably had worse days at the office.

The Liverpool midfielder says he's proud to be the first player from his club to feature on the cover of the game.

"Being part of the first FIFA cover vote was an incredible honour and it’s an amazing feeling to know that the public voted for me to come out on top and to be on the cover of FIFA 16 alongside Messi.

“I’m extremely proud to become the first Liverpool player ever on the cover and the support I’ve had from fans around the world over the past few weeks, particularly Liverpool supporters, has been overwhelming. It’s great to realise every young footballer’s dream and I’m grateful to everyone who voted."

As if to prove that he deserves to be on the cover with Messi, EA Sports have released a video of Hendo scoring a free kick:
