Lionel Messi in, Cristiano Ronaldo Out!

Once again, we’re back, celebrating FIFA 23’s Team of the Week for Week 18. Here we honor those who are up for double upgrades in FUT23 and those who outshined the rest around the globe.

For this week’s Team of the Week, EA has listed the team as: “ GOAT strikers, ace midfielders, and centreback stalwarts”. The biggest GOAT on the list is none other than Messi, who’s now made it over his greatest rival, Ronaldo — who was in the Team of the Week two weeks ago for Week 16.
