Alex Teixeira's dream five-a-side team

For a man with 23 goals from midfield this season, it is no surprise Shakhtar Donetsk's Alex Teixeira opted not to bother with a keeper or defenders in his five-a-side dream team.

Considering the number of goals he has scored this season, perhaps it should be little surprise that Alex Teixeira opted to go all-out attack with his five-a-side dream team. The Shakhtar Donetsk man has already amassed 23 club goals from midfield this term, including 19 in just 13 appearances in the Ukrainian top flight. The Brazilian has picked three of his fellow countrymen in his personal dream team as well as the Spanish Liga's deadly duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
