Lionel Messi joined by Liverpool's Jordan Henderson on FIFA 16 cover
What a day it's been for Jordan Henderson.
Unsurprisingly, people are slightly surprised at the choice. Messi seems poised to carry out one of his usual mazy runs, whereas Henderson is doing his best to represent his style, jogging about and closing up gaps.
Does this mean that the hard-working midfielder is going to be alongside Messi on the podium when the awards are handed out at the end of this year? The answer may surprise you (no).
