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.
