Clint Dempsey is in the game. EA Sports FIFA 15 game that is.

It was revealed prior to kickoff in the friendly between the Tottenham Hotspur and the Seattle Sounders before a full capacity CenturyLink Field in Seattle that Dempsey will grace the North America edition next to Lionel Messi.

Dempsey made his return to Major League Soccer last August after a successful stint in the English Premier League with Tottenham and Fulham. While in Europe he set the record as the most successful goal scoring American in EPL history overtaking the record from former United States Men’s National Team member, Brian McBride.

It took Dempsey some time to adjust to MLS and only scored one game in eleven matches with Seattle last season. He started off the 2014 MLS season on fire. After five matches that he played in, he had eight goals and led the league in that category until he was called away for international duty back in May. He has become the face of US Soccer, the Sounders and MLS throughout 2014 as well. As such, EA Sports is smart to bank on his popularity state side and put him on the cover next to another legend like Messi.

As more information comes in, I will update this article. I would love to hear what Dempsey has to say about being named as the man to grace the cover of FIFA 15 in the United States.
