It’s that time of the week yet again. EA Sports have revealed their latest Team of the Week, the 32nd group of upgraded in-forms to be released for FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. 23 players made the list as usual, but all eyes will be on one card this week as Lionel Messi has been given a purple hero card thanks to his two-goal performance in the latest El Clasico including a goal with the last kick of the match to beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. This is Messi’s fourth special card of the cycle and his first card to receive a position change from right winger to central attacking midfielder.

Messi isn’t the only position change to get excited about. One of the most over-powered players in the game, Anthony Martial, has gotten a much-anticipated striker card. His base rare gold card and IF card have been left wingers and very good, but now he’ll get a true striker card to ravage in the Weekend League.

A few other notables include Leonardo Bonucci, Blaise Matuidi, and Christian Benteke. Here’s the full TOTW:
