Hearts midfielder Don Cowie has been included in the EA Sports Fifa 16 team of the week after his star showing at the weekend.

The veteran netted twice in a 5-1 victory over Inverness and was hailed afterwards for his terrific performance, with manager Robbie Neilson admitting he substituted the player only so he could receive a standing ovation from the Tynecastle crowd.

The display earned him a place alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Gareth Bale in the Fifa 16 select squad, though the Hearts hero had to make do with a place among the seven-man subs bench.

EA Sports, the makers of the much-loved video game, release a ‘Ultimate Team’ on social media every week, choosing the star performers from around the top leagues included in the game.
