Virgil Van Dijk Announced as FIFA 20 Cover Star

Virgil Van Dijk Announced as FIFA 20 Cover Star

Virgil van Dijk will be on the front cover of the new FIFA 20 after a stunning season for Liverpool.

The Dutch defender emerged as one of the best centre backs in the world last term as he led the Anfield side to the Champions League title.

And he’s deservedly been awarded the front cover of the upcoming game – joining new Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard in being recognised.

Hazard is the cover star for the standard edition of the game while van Dijk will be on the front of the champions edition.

Considering the Dutchman and Liverpool are European champions after their final victory over Tottenham in June, it’s only right van Dijk is on the champions version of the game.

And he looks right at home:

Van Dijk appeared 56 times for Liverpool last season as they won the Champions League and pushed Manchester City to the final day in the English Premier League.
