Melbourne City’s record-breaker included in FIFA 23’s Team of the Week

He broke a record in the Isuzu UTE A-League. Now, Melbourne City talisman Jamie Maclaren features in FIFA 23’s Team of the Week.

Maclaren became the first player in the history of the Isuzu UTE A-League to score in nine consecutive games after his brace guided league-leading City past Wellington Phoenix 3-1 on Monday.

The Socceroos forward, who is just 10 goals shy of the all-time scoring record held by Besart Berisha (142), has 12 goals through nine matches this season.

Thanks to his performance against the Phoenix, Maclaren (83) has earned a spot in EA Sports FIFA 23’s TOTW for Round 10, albeit on the bench alongside Australia team-mate and Celtic star Aaron Mooy (83).

Mooy scored twice during the week for Scottish champions and current leaders Celtic against Hibernian before their last-gasp 2-2 draw at Rangers.

FIFA 23 TOTW is headlined by the likes of Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard (88), Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann (87), Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw (84) and Douglas Luiz (87) of Aston Villa.
