Petratos joins Mbappe and Sergio Ramos in FIFA 20 Team of the Week
Newcastle Jets’ talisman Dimitri Petratos has been named alongside global superstars Kylian Mpabbe and Sergio Ramos in this week’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.
Petratos is named as a substitute while France’s FIFA World Cup 2018 hero Mbappe is joined by AS Monaco danger man Wissam Ben Yedder and Bayern Leverkusen’s German hotshot Kevin Volland up front.
Netherlands international stars Frenkie de Jong, of Spanish giants FC Barcelona, and Stefan De Vrij, of Italian powerhouse Inter Milan, also feature in the star-studded cast.
The Socceroos attacker is named as a back-up to Watford’s gun attacking midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure, who has recently been linked by media reports to Chelsea and Manchester United.
Petratos’ rating of 90 for pace makes him the joint third quickest player in the all-star line-up, behind only French icon Mpabbe, of Paris Saint-Germain, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Serbian wing wizard Filip Kostić.
The 27-year-old earned the recognition for his dazzling display in the 4-3 win against Central Coast Mariners, after scoring twice in the F3 Derby thriller, including the strike that was voted Hyundai A-League Goal of the Week for Round 18.
Petratos is set to line up in new coach Carl Robinson's first match in charge of the Hunter outfit, on the road against Western Sydney Wanderers at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday.
