Kurt Zouma

West Ham United’s stars have continued to impress far and wide, with Kurt Zouma the latest Hammer to be named in the FIFA 22 Team of the Week.

The Frenchman becomes the fourth Iron to receive a ‘Special’ card in the last four weeks, after fellow defenders Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Declan Rice both were recognised for their superb form by EA Sports’ football gaming title.

Zouma himself scored his first West Ham goal on Sunday, converting Jarrod Bowen’s corner kick to seal the points later on while producing an impressive seven clearances and blocking three shots as he made his mark at both ends of the pitch in the 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The No4 has received an in-game Team of the Week ‘in-form’ card, boosting his overall rating – already initially at a solid 81 – within FIFA Ultimate Team up to a strong 84.

The defender’s FIFA card now boasts a superb defensive rating of 85 (up from an initial 81) and physical attributes rated 88 (up from 85).

Zouma has also had his pace attribute augmented to 70 (from 65); his passing to 66 (from 63); and his dribbling to 60 (from 57).

West Ham United fans will be able to collect his Team of the Week card in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team packs as of 6pm on Wednesday 10 November. The card will be available until 5.59pm on Wednesday 17 November.
