Eoin Doyle's brilliance up front for St Pats has been recognised by EA Sports, with the Dubliner included in the latest FIFA 23 team of the week.
Doyle finished the season with aplomb with a man of the match display against Shelbourne on Sunday, and has been recognised alongside some of European football's best, in the latest edition of the FIFA 23 TOTW.
FIFA 23 TOTW 8: Eoin Doyle makes the cut
Eoin Doyle captained St Pats on the final day of the Airtricity League season on Sunday, and it spurred him on to an excellent performance. He would ultimately score two and assist a third in Pats' 4-0 win over FAI Cup finalists Shelbourne, as Pats narrowly missed out on European football for 2023-24.

Nonetheless, it has been a hugely successful individual season for Eoin Doyle. His goal involvements on Sunday brought his total tally to 14 goals and six assists for the season, leaving him behind only Aidan Keena of Sligo Rovers in the Premier Division's tally of top scorers.
Doyle's strong performance against Sligo Rovers clearly caught the eye of EA Sports, as he can now count a FIFA 23 Team of the Week appearance alongside his on-field heroics this season. He was added to the eighth team of the week on FIFA 23, alongside such names as Mo Salah, James Maddison, and Kevin Trapp.

Doyle's TOTW card boasts a 75 overall rating, as well as 74 pace, and 76 shooting ratings, meaning he will be one of the most sought after League of Ireland assets on FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
Mo Salah's card will also surely become one of the most popular and in-demand on the game, with a 92 rating coming as a result of his two-goal haul at Spurs in the Premier League, and his goal in last week's Champions League clash with Napoli. His 92 pace rating, in particular, will make him a weapon for Ultimate Team players.
It's fantastic to see some League of Ireland representation on a FIFA 23 Team of the Week - and it is well deserved for St Pats' Eoin Doyle after wrapping up the season in such style.
