EA today announced that Tim Cahill — a recent new recruit of the New York Red Bulls — will share the cover of FIFA 13 alongside Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi.

Admittedly, I wouldn’t have known who was who, but thankfully EA Australia sent us the celebratory shot of Cahill, above.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming up the FIFA franchise again this year,” said Cahill.  “Seeing myself in the New York Red Bull’s kit on the pack of FIFA 13 is fantastic and the perfect excuse to set up a few games with the rest of the team in NYC.”

Here’s the cover in full:

FIFA 13 will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 from 27 September in Australia and 28 September in New Zealand.
