News: With a name like Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, I'd shorten it too.
Spain may have won the World Cup, but Brazilian midfielder Kaka has been selected as the cover athlete for FIFA Soccer 11:
Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, or better known as Kaka, is one of the finest soccer players of this generation, having won the Golden Ball and FIFA World Player of the Year awards in 2007. During the 2009-2010 season, Kaka scored 8 goals in 22 appearances for Real Madrid.
?Kaka brings passion, imagination and individual flair to the game every time on the pitch,? said Matt Bilbey, Vice President of Soccer, EA Sports. ?He perfectly illustrates a new feature in FIFA Soccer 11 called Personality+ that sees a player's individual ability reflected in game, enabling clear differentiation for every player. With Kaka's visionary style of soccer he's always one step ahead of the opposition, moving into space with an often subtle change of pace and delivering crisp, creative one-touch passes and catching the goalkeepers off guard with strikes often from distance on either foot. His play is unlike any other player in our game and you will feel individual differences like this in each player, in every match.?
FIFA Soccer 11 is in development at EA Canada and it'll be released for the DS, PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP and Xbox 360 on September 28. A Wii version will be released a week later on October 4.
