Some Twitter users feel that Xherdan Shaqiri should have been included in Team of the Week, especially after he came off the bench and scored a brace against Manchester United.
FIFA 19 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Should Shaqiri have been in Team of the Week?
