FIFA Soccer 11 cover to feature Ricardo 'Kaka' Izecson dos Santos Leite

His name is actually Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, but he's better known as "Kaka." The Real Madrid midfielder will grace the cover of EA Sports' forthcoming footballer -- FIFA Soccer 11 -- in addition to being the "center-piece of global advertising, marketing, and promotional campaigns."

For his part, 'Kaka' says (hehehe) "I've always been a fan of EA Sports and especially the FIFA Series. Being on the FIFA Soccer 11 cover is a great honor for me since very few players have this opportunity, and there have been some great players featured on the cover of this truly amazing videogame." We might point out to Mr. Leite that, like, dozens of soccer players were featured on FIFA 10's many covers, but hey, it's his big moment. Let him enjoy it, we say.
