EA Sports have revealed their 27th Team of the Week for FIFA 17. They’ve finally done it. They’ve given Lionel Messi his first in-form card of this game’s cycle. The best player in the world and possibly of all-time does have a Team of the Group Stage card and a Team of the Year card, but amazingly in late March, he’s just now getting his first in-form card.

This team is absolutely stacked, something our predictions extraordinaire thought might happen with FUT’s birthday extravaganza possibly happening this week. Along with the GOAT himself you also have 90-rated Kevin De Bruyne, 89-rated Romelu Lukaku, and 86-rated Juan Cuadrado. What a team!

Maybe EA doesn’t hate Messi? I mean they mentioned him in their announcement tweet? Right? Oh...
