Willian has clearly taken a side in the Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi debate.

The Chelsea winger was asked to name his dream five-a-side by Squawka and he gave the Argentine the nod over his Real Madrid rival.

‘Defence be damned,’ thought Willian as he went all-out attack without anything resembling a defender or goalkeeper.

Andres Iniesta and Zinedine Zidane start in his midfield, while fellow Brazilian Ronaldinho partners Messi in support of the striker.

“Ronaldo Nazario. That’s my striker,” Willian said. “Ronaldinho Gaucho goes on the left.

“Messi on the right,” he added. “Zidane and Iniesta to organise the team.”
