Maurice Edu is officially the first Major League Soccer player to be turned into a Mii. He will also join Brazilian Ronaldhino and Mexican Guillermo Ochoa on the cover and as a spokesperson for EA Sports FIFA 09 in North America.

Additionally, he will be the only MLS player as a customize Mii for the Wii. EA SPORTS has created a unique version of Edu and his character will be playable alongside some of the world’s biggest soccer stars, including Ronaldinho, Wayne Rooney, Franck Ribéry and others— all created as special Mii characters exclusively for FIFA Soccer 09 All-Play.

Edu is in his second season with Toronto FC after being selected first overall in the 2007 MLS Superdraft and then being named MLS Rookie of the Year.

Earlier this month Edu participated in a body motion capture session with the EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer 09 videogame development team at EA Canada in Burnaby, British Columbia. During the session Edu’s body movements, individual moves and playing style were captured and digitized, and will become the life-like movement of his virtual self in FIFA Soccer 09 and future versions of the game.

This year EA SPORTS is changing the way sports games are played online by becoming the first sports videogame to enable up to 20 individuals playing fixed positions to play a single game of FIFA Soccer 09 at the same time. Instead of thinking as an individual player now you have to think and play as a team in Be A Pro: 10 vs. 10 Online Team Play for the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360.
