"FIFA 17," the upcoming football simulation video game from Electronic Arts (EA) apparently has a new team in its list, a development said to have been confirmed  via an image leaked by Ada Hegerberg, a striker for the Norwegian women's national team.

The women's national team from Norway is the first team that has been rumoured to be a part of the "FIFA 17" video game.

Hegerberg posted a picture on Instagram where she is seen getting scanned for the upcoming game. She has also used the hashtag "#FIFA17," thereby setting off speculation of the participation of her national team in the upcoming game. It is likely EA will scan the rest of her teammates soon.

These scans take a 3D image of the player, thus adding realism to the games, in an effort to make the in-game characters look visually better and more realistic.

EA added the women's national squads for the first time in "FIFA 16." It was a first in the entire FIFA franchise, which has a popular fan following. "FIFA 16" saw the addition of 12 women's national teams. This year, EA plans to increase the number of women's teams in the upcoming video game, Attack of the Fanboy reported.
