League Of Ireland Star Included In FIFA 20 Team Of The Week

Shamrocks Rovers star Graham Burke has been included in the FIFA 20 Team of the Week, joining some of the biggest names in the sport in a star-studded team.

The on-loan Preston forward banged in five goals against Cork City last Friday night, becoming the first Rovers player to record that tally in a single game for over 50 years.

He has been rewarded with a 75 OVR player item as a result, with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Robert Lewandowski and Koke also included.


Speaking to RTÉ after the game, Burke said he is hoping his form with the Dublin club could earn him an international call-up:

Obviously there's ambitions. If people see me come back to this country they might see it as a step back but for me I want to be at Shamrock Rovers.

On a personal level I find it comfortable here, my life here is great, I come into work in an environment where everybody knows how I work and a manager that believes in me.

I knew quite quickly what I wanted when I went back to England and I discovered my best form when I was here before. All I wanted to do is be happy and enjoy the game and I feel this is best situation for me.
