Those playing EA Sports' FIFA 17 might have a new star to add to their team.
Soccer stars Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar have a new peer — at least when it comes to player ratings within the latest version of the international soccer game.
EA Sports created a player card for Kenton Doust that gives the 15-year-old an astounding 95 player rating.
Doust is a Canadian and Vancouver Whitecaps fan who began chemotherapy on Oct. 30, 2015 after doctors discovered three brain tumors, according to foxsports.com . After 25 sessions of chemo, Doust was declared cancer free.
Electronic Arts, the maker of the game, is based in Vancouver and opted to honor Doust within the game.
