He was one of the standout players in Australia's successful World Cup campaign last year, as well as being at the center of Aussie heartbreak after his slide tackle gave away the winning penalty to Italy in the round of 16 finals. Now Socceroos defender and West Ham United captain Lucas Neill is set to grace the cover of Konami's latest Pro Evolution Soccer title, which is set for release in November this year.
Neill will be joined by Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo on the front of PES 2008 games in Australia and New Zealand. Both football superstars will also be featured in point-of-sale materials for the game throughout the two countries. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS.
