Three Arsenal players – Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus have been handed a nomination for the FIFA 23 Team of the Year.
THE LOWDOWN: MAGNIFICENT 2022
Saka and Odegaard started the year under review as Arsenal players and were able to finish strongly despite Arsenal’s disappointment in not winning a trophy.
Saka turned up in some big games and was also named Arsenal’s player of the season is currently the reigning England Men’s Player of the year.
The young winger was equally impressive at the World Cup, scoring three goals in four games and winning a penalty leading to a goal in the quarter-final against France.
On the other hand, Odegaard, had his first full calendar year as an Arsenal player; he scored 10 and assisted six from midfield. He was named club captain before the start of the 2022/23 season.
Meanwhile, Jesus started out the year with Manchester City, scoring 11 goals in all competitions in the first half of 2022 as they went on to lift the Premier League title. And prior to his injury, Jesus has been key to Arsenal’s rise to the top of the league.
