Buffon and Messi feature in defender's line-up

Town full-back Josh Emmanuel has picked his dream five-a-side team.

The 21-year-old opted for a 2-1-1 formation and selected Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon as his shot-stopper.

Raphael Varane features in Josh's back two. The 26-year-old centre-half enjoyed an incredible 2018 as he lifted the Champions League with Real Madrid and the World Cup with France.

Thiago Silva forms the other half of the defensive pairing. The PSG captain is currently preparing for the Copa America final after his Brazil side defeated Argentina 2-0 in the early hours of the morning.

Another Brazilian features as the sole midfielder. Ronaldinho won two FIFA World Player of the Year awards during his time at European clubs while also picking up a Ballon D'Or in 2005. Renowned for his technical ability and creativity, Ronaldinho earned 97 caps for his country and was a key member of the side that won the 2002 World Cup.

Regularly referred to as the 'GOAT', Lionel Messi leads the line. The Argentinian maestro has won everything there is to win in club football and boasts a ridiculous goal scoring record for Barcelona.
