FIFA Ultimate Team - Team of the Week
Each week, FIFA Ultimate Team assembles the best players from international and club competition around the world. This collection of players is available to challenge in FIFA Ultimate Team.
After spending the start of 2013 playing in the United States, Juninho made his second return to Vasco da Gama and immediately made a difference for the popular Rio club. It only took him 16 minutes to get on the score sheet as they easily defeated the struggling Fluminense 1:3. He would also earn an assist on the game-winning goal.
After only two matches, Spartak Moscow remains the only club in Russia with a spotless record. Irish International midfielder Aiden McGeady scored his first goal of the season in the 8th minute of a 0:2 road win over newly promoted FK Ural. The Red-Whites will attempt to continue their perfect season with a tough local derby against Dinamo Moscow this Saturday.
In Mexico, Cruz Azul started the 2013-14 Apertura with a 1:0 victory over C.F. Monterrey. Luis Amaranto Perea was absolutely incredible in defense, and the club from Mexico City only allowed their guests one shot on goal. Having finished as runner ups in the 2012-13 Clausura, their fans will be expecting even greater results this season.
