Philadelphia Union midfielders Cristian Maidana and Vincent Nogueira have been named to the FIFA 15 Team of the Week 44. Both players had a fantastic game against Portland this past weekend with Maidana getting a hat trick of assists to go along with Nogueira's brace.

Maidana is getting the biggest upgrade of the two with a +3 overall stat boost and a position change from left wing to center attacking midfield. Nogueira only receives a +1 overall stat boost and a position change from central midfield to center defensive midfield. This marks the first time a Philadelphia Union player has been named to the EA Sports Team of the Week since Sebastien Le Toux received the honor last summer. The fact that the Union have two players in the same week is pretty awesome to say the least.

The Union duo will join fellow MLS players Sebastian Giovinco, Dominic Oduro and Bradley Wright-Phillips in the Team of the Week. You can see the full Team of the Week here.
