GOATED - Lionel Messi makes an appearance this week!

The big news is that Lionel Messi is included in the side, with a 92-rated card which has been position changed to a ST.

It could be a good time for fodder, with 13 of the players included sporting an 86 OVR or higher!

Take a look at all the Team of the Week 18 cards right here.

Best Players

With Team of the Week 18 cards coming to the player pool, we're once again taking a look at the best players to pack from the recent release.

'Best' can be defined in a few different ways, but we will simplify it by classing it as the most valuable cards or those with top attributes.

Obviously, Messi is by far the best to pack, especially from a financial point of view!

His card will likely be worth a couple of hundred-thousand coins, with very similar stats to his early Player of the Month version.

Elsewhere, Andre-Franck Zambo Anguissa has picked up a very decent-looking card, which has very similar stats to his Road to the Knockouts version, which is a beast in the middle of the park!

Phil Foden could also be someone to look out for when opening packs, as his 87 OVR card may be worth around 100,000 coins.

Dynamic Cards

With Ones to Watch cards in the game, we have some live cards that can be affected by Team of the Week inclusions.


Unfortunately, we go another week without a OTW player included, with the wait going all the way back to TOTW 13!

You can still keep on top of all the previous upgrades using our Ones to Watch Tracker.

Road to the Final cards won't be influenced by TOTW, but they are another set of live items in FUT 23, which you can monitor with our RTTF Tracker.
