Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterAugust 21, 2014

Eden Hazard, the Chelsea and Belgium winger, has been confirmed as FIFA 15's cover star in the U.K.

The video game is being fronted by Lionel Messi of Barcelona all around the world, but to give the game a more local flavour in various countries, club stars are being used.

In the United States, for instance, Clint Dempsey got the nod. Meanwhile, in Australia, Tim Cahill has been chosen.
