So, the FIFA Street Cover has finally been unveiled and Lionel Messi is gracing it with his presence.

We’ve already mentioned that there’s a host of players out there that are probably better suited than Messi to front EA SPORTS FIFA Street, a game centered on skill and tricks and showboating around your opponents with a compendium of cool and extravagant skill moves.

FIFA Street Packaging  Official FIFA Street Cover FIFA Street PackagingYes, Messi’s footballing ability is unrivalled at the moment but have you ever seen him do a step over even?  (No, I’m struggling to think of a time too…)

Sure, the man can move the ball at his feet faster than Joey Barton can insult the TOWIE cast but can he do a fake Rabona straight into a Rainbow Flick?

Maybe I’m doing Lionel an injustice.  I’m sure the best footballer in the world is capable of a few keep ups and could of Round the Worlds.  Let’s hope we find out in the run up toFIFA Street’s release in March 2012 with a couple of promotional Messi freestyling videos

Come on EA, don’t disappoint! 😀

In the mean time we’ll have to make do with the FIFA Street cover and these very cool screenshots.
