In a video, Felix could be seen answering questions on a variety of fascinating subjects. When asked to select his dream team, the Chelsea player on loan mentioned Messi, Neymar, Bernardo Silva, and himself.

The Portuguese sensation had previously chosen Lionel Messi over Cristiano Ronaldo. Felix chose the Argentine when asked earlier this year who among the two took the finest free kicks.
That doesn’t imply, though, that Felix doesn’t think highly of Ronaldo. He was taken aback by Fernando Santos’ choice to sit Ronaldo during the FIFA World Cup.
“We were surprised, because seeing Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench is not something you’re used to. But it was the gaffer’s decision: he’s the one who calls the shots. Cristiano reacted really well, because we were all pulling in the same direction and creating positive vibes.
“His reaction was really good for the rest of us, because he looked to give the team confidence and make it clear that we were all in this together. It was really good for us and he just kept on being a real help in every way.”
