FIFA 20: Lionel Messi, Lewandowski and Payet in The Team of the Week for November 13.
Lionel Messi heads the team of the week #9 that was recently unveiled by EA Sports. He is joined by Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski as well as Liverpool’s Andy Robertson and others. 

The Team of the Week or TOTW is a list of 23 players selected from across the globe by EA Sports for their real-life performances in their respective championships during the past week. National team games or continental cups like the Champions League do not come into play here.

These players receive a boost in some of their characteristics, which also raises their overall rating, usually +1. This boost is made from the biggest card of the already existing player. If a player had already figured in a Team of the Week, his boost will be all the more important.

Messi is the standout name to be featured in TOTW 9, after shining in a recent game against Celta Vigo with a hat-trick. Messi scored his goals with a penalty and two free-kicks. His performance was so sublime that the Spanish press paid tribute to the Argentinian.

The daily Sport has published a page where the name of Messi is repeated 3 times in reference to his hat-trick: "Messi, Messi, Messi and only Messi". For its part, El Mundo Deportivo hailed the "genius" of the Argentine.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski scored a brace in Bayern Munich’s 4-0 over Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. Robertson assisted in Liverpool’s second goal in their 3-1 win over defending champions Manchester City in the Premier League. 

Fifa 20 has been a huge success, with the Ultimate Team (FUT) mode's Team of the Week (TOTW) feature back in force.

Every week, the hordes of FUT fans are given the chance to boost their squad by picking up limited-edition player cards with stats boosted by the player's real-life exploits on the pitch.

Others in the team of the week #9 are Wojciech Szczesny (GK), Ben Foster (GK), Ricardo Pereira (RB), Alex Telles (LB), Radja Nainggolan (CAM), Donny van de Beek (CAM), Nicolo Barella (CM) and Dmitri Payet (LW).
