Ahead of the launch of FIFA 16 in September – which will feature women’s teams for the first time – Steph Houghton and her England teammates have been talking about what it means to them to be involved in the game.
Houghton said: “The whole team are thrilled to be included in EA SPORTS FIFA 16. It’s a really exciting year for women’s football with the World Cup and to find out we will be included in FIFA for the first time is a special feeling.
“To be one of the first female players included in the game is something we’ll always be able to look back on and be proud of. Hopefully it will help raise the profile of the women’s game even further. Quite a few of us in the team play FIFA so I’m sure there will be a bit of banter about our ratings and a few extra competitive games while we’re away in Canada… I’m looking forward to scoring as myself for the first time!”
We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy in September – it’s a great step forward not only for the women’s game but football as a whole. Women and girls are very much much in the game.
