Fiji-born and Wellington Phoenix star Roy Krishna has been selected in the FIFA 19 Team of the Week alongside French superstar Kylain Mbappé.

Stuff.co reports, it is Krishna’s second selection in a FIFA Team of the Week this season after first making the cut in late January.

The 31-year-old Fijian earned his second citation after a hat-trick in the Phoenix’s 3-2 A-League home win over Melbourne City last Sunday.

Krishna was named in a forward line comprising Mbappé, who has led Paris St Germain to the French Ligue 1 title, and Real Madrid’s French international striker Karim Benzema.

His Phoenix teammates, Sarpreet Singh and David Williams, have also made FIFA Team of the Week selections in 2019.

Krishna has had his most productive season in the A-League.

He leads the Golden Boot scoring charts with 18 goals in 25 games – two ahead of Sydney FC’s English import Adam Le Fondre.

Krishna has a chance to become the third Wellington Phoenix player to win the Johnny Warren Medal as A-League Player of the Year.
