Hyundai A-League star in FIFA Team of the Week

For the second week in succession, the Hyundai A-League is represented in EA SPORTS’ FIFA 17, FIFA Ultimate Team of the Week.

Western Sydney Wanderers striker Brendon Santalab was included last week.

This time, it’s Brisbane Roar’s Caltex Socceroo marksman Jamie Maclaren!

Like Santalab before him, the Brisbane hot-shot has been named in the reserves.

The Team of the Week is released by EA Sports each Wednesday, and is made up of players who have played well the previous week in real life.

Maclaren’s eight-minute hat-trick against the Mariners in round 25 of the Hyundai A-League catapulted him into contention.

A-League Team of the Month: March

Included in the starting eleven are star Bundesliga strikers Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gomez, while Liverpool’s Brazilian magician Philippe Coutinho is also selected after his masterclass in the Merseyside Derby. 

Maclaren’s Roar face Perth Glory at nib Stadium on Saturday night as part of a Hyundai A-League triple-header.
