Electronic Arts announced today that Everton FC midfielder Tim Cahill, will join Real Madrid’s Kaka, and Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney on the local cover of the upcoming EA Sports FIFA 11.

Cahill, Rooney and Kaka are part of a group of 17 football stars who will adorn FIFA 11 worldwide.

Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, or better known as Kaka, 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.

“I’ve always been a fan of EA SPORTS and especially the FIFA series,” said Kaka. “Being on the FIFA 11 cover is a great honour for me since very few players have this opportunity, and there have been some great footballers featured on the cover of this truly amazing football game.”

FIFA 11 will introduce new Pro Passing. where pass accuracy is determined by a gamer’s ability on the control pad, and player skill, situation and urgency on the pitch. The game is scheduled for release in early October on all major platforms.
