FIFA 19 Community Team of the Season: Ibrahimovic, Alderweireld and Thiago star

The trio are among the top names picked after enjoying fine seasons with their respective clubs

The FIFA 19 Community Team of the Season (TOTS) has been chosen through a vote and picked from 103 nominees who never made it into a Team of the Week (TOTW).

Each year, the first squad released is made up of players who performed well throughout the campaign but often went unnoticed – and, consequentially, did not receive in-form items in TOTW.

Those who hadn't scored hat-tricks or braces but still scored a prolific number of goals tend to be included, due to having performed consistently despite not being regarded as a marquee player. 

Voters were tasked to build their own 23-man squads consisting of least two goalkeepers, six defenders, six midfielders and three forwards. To make sure that an even spread of players from different competitions were involved, only four players from the same league were allowed to be chosen.

This year, Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the way in the FIFA 19 Community Team of the Season following his goalscoring prowess with LA Galaxy.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen gets the nod in goal, with Porto duo Alex Telles and Felipe joined by Bayern's Niklas Sule and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld in defence.
