Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been rewarded for his record-breaking exploits while on international duty by being named in the FIFA 18 Team of the Week.

The 29-year-old became Poland's all-time top goalscorer with a hat-trick which also helped him to become the most prolific goalscorer in World Cup qualifying history with 16 strikes in ten appearances, smashing the previous European single-campaign record held by Predrag Mijatovic, who struck 14 for Yugoslavia in qualifying for the 1998 World Cup.

It also bettered Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who netted 15 qualifying goals, and saw Lewandowksi's FIFA 18 rating boosted to 92 points. Poland booked their place at next summer's World Cup largely thanks to the Bayern Munich sharp-shooter's phenomenal form.

In the rankings, produced by EA Sports, Lewandowski has now joined his club mate Manuel Neuer among the top six players in the world.

He was not the only Bundesliga player to feature in the team of the week, though.
