Time has flown - we're already into week 3 of our FIFA 21 TOTW Predictions powered by Score More With Xbox!

Compared to the last 2 TOTWs I wouldn’t be so excited about TOTW 3. Although the International TOTW usually produces some nice cards it might be a little dry this week, as most of the games were fairly tame and low scoring.

It was honestly a struggle to find 23 players who put in TOTW worthy performances, but here we are. Let’s see what team we can put together and I'll talk about the reasoning behind each decision!

Let’s do it.

Probably the main highlight of the week is going to be Firmino scoring 2 goals for Brazil in 5-0 victory, he’s quite popular player in FUT this year and he might become even better. Neymar had a good game too, but he wasn’t included last week with 2 goals and 1 assist, so I didn’t include him this week for two assists.

I included a bit of a wild-card pick in Sergio Ramos. He might not get an IF but he had an awesome game against Switzerland and was MOTM so I think he deserves an IF.

We should get the first OTW upgrade already, Martin Odegard assisted 2 goals for Norway which should be enough to get him into the TOTW. Although his team mate Haaland scored 3, he can’t be included as he was in TOTW last week.

Apart from that there are some decent IFs, like Muriel who scored 2 goals or SMS with 2 goals against Norway too.

As per many international TOTW weeks hopefully we'll get a surprise or two who improve the team that I've put together!
