Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere snuggle up - FIFA 12 box art revealed

Arsenal and Man Utd close as close can be

Man Utd and Arsenal fans often can't bear to be in the same room as one another. But when it comes to their star players, things obviously take a turn for the Soft & Gentle on occasion.

Read our FIFA 12 review.


EA's unveiled the box art for FIFA 12 - and it shows Man Utd's Wayne Rooney and Arsenal's Jack Wilshere getting very close indeed.

Sadly for Jack, he's still at the nascent 'gormless ball studying' stage of box stardom. Wayne's long past that, of course - comfortably nestling into his halcyon 'victorious tongue reveal' period.

The two England stars will feature together on the UK, Ireland, Scandinavian and Middle East packs. Don't expect this kind of happy snuggledom on the pitch when the season kicks off at the end of the summer.

Interestingly, there's no room for a Man City player on the box - even after EA Sports deemed the northern side its very own 'Special One' with a sponsorship deal.

FIFA 12 is due for release on September 27 in the US and three days later in the UK.

Konami doesn't believe it's the "most advanced football game ever". EA no doubt does.
