Megan Rapinoe: Fans launch petition to get USA star on front cover of FIFA 20 after Women’s World Cup triumph


A petition has been launched for USA forward Megan Rapinoe to be the cover star of FIFA 20.

The 34-year-old was sensational for her country as they won the World Cup for a fourth time.

She picked up the Golden Boot and Golden Ball after scoring six goals and made an impact both on and off the pitch.

Rapinoe was vocal in her criticism of US president Donald Trump throughout the tournament and refused to go to the White House in the aftermath of the team’s success.

There has never been a woman on the cover of the popular video game and a petition has been on started on Change.org by Darren Holland to try and change that.

He said: “FIFA needs to change its policy on prize money but that’s just the start.

“More exposure of this team and women’s football will help change their minds.

“EA has already done more than FIFA in terms of support so this is a no-brainer which I know they must be contemplating.

“Much respect to IGN for the original post and image on social media.”

There have been just 197 signatures on the petition (at the time of publication) since it was posted on social media on Thursday.
