Women Football Stars Can't Believe How Terrible FIFA 23 Made Them Look




More people have been embracing the women's Game in various sporting leagues around the world. It's great to see Sports teams establish a women's team and publicize them as much as the men's teams. However, in reality, it's a long road till the two are on equal footing. EA Sports and FIFA have been doing their part in representing women's Football as well, and FIFA 23 followed suit with an update on March 22.

The FIFA 23 update introduced the UEFA Women’s Champions League and National Women’s Soccer League along with 12 of the teams from the U.S. league. However, it appears that the pro Footballers aren't too happy with their avatars in the Game. Many of these players couldn't help but make fun of how the Game made them look (thanks, Kotaku).

With the technology and attention to detail to capture the biggest stars of the game, like Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi, it seems EA didn't put the same effort into the likeness for the women.

"I’m grateful EA Sports is finally including the NWSL but this does not represent me,” Tweeted Houston Dash player Caprice Dydasco. She shared an image of herself and of her FIFA 23 version, with the latter looking quite a few skin tones lighter. Liverpool's Katie Stengel also wasn't happy with her likeness, replying, "Be grateful they gave you hair lol".

Angel City FC's Sydney Leroux put up multiple Tweets about the state of women Footballers' likeness in FIFA 23. "I know you expect women to just be thankful and grateful that you’ve given us a little sliver of publicity but please stop wasting our time. Some of us are bald," she Tweeted. "You are going to scare my children.”

Head over to Leroux's Twitter handle and you'll notice numerous other footballers criticizing how FIFA has made their in-game versions look nothing like their actual selves. EA Sports has not yet made a comment on this, but considering the amount of publicity this has gotten, you can expect an update pretty soon. EA used facial and movement scanning technology for the men's teams, so it's unclear why these look so different.
