On fire Adelaide United star Craig Goodwin has been selected in FIFA 19's Ultimate Team of the Week after his extraordinary form in the A-League and the FFA Cup.

The 26-year-attacker has taken the Australian domestic football scene by storm recently, scoring twice in the Reds' FFA Cup final victory over Sydney FC last week, while also nabbing two goals and an assist in the 3-0 league win over Central Coast on the weekend.

Goodwin's in-form player card is 75-rated gold left midfield card - a significant upgrade from his standard 66-rated silver card - and features 82 pace, 77 dribbling, 74 shooting and 72 passing.

His card will be available in the FIFA 19 packs for one week, while the video game's players can also purchase in the transfer market for around 10,000 coins.

The former Melbourne City wide man is the first A-League or Australian player to be picked in the heralded weekly squad since FIFA 19's release in late September.

Also named in TOTW 8 is Napoli attacker Dries Mertens, RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner and West Ham winger Felipe Anderson.
