A League of Ireland attacker has been named as a reserve on the FIFA 17 ‘Rest of the World’ Team of the Season, writes Stephen Barry.
The game has selected teams of the season across 14 of the world’s top leagues, and now has released a Rest of the World team for those in other divisions.
The team features players plying their trade in Europe, South America, Australia and Asia, but among them all, named in the reserves, is Bray Wanderers attacking midfielder Gary McCabe.
McCabe has scored 13 goals in 16 league games since signing for the Seagulls at the start of the season.
He’s joined in the squad by Northern Ireland striker Liam Boyce, who plays for Ross County. Scott Sinclair of Celtic also makes the selection on the bench.
