Marco Verratti has chosen his perfect 5-a-side team - and Christiano Ronaldo's not in it.

The Paris St-Germain midfielder told Goal.com that he would opt for an all-attacking outfit, with no goalkeeper and just one defender.

Verratti thinks that with the awesome attacking power of his side there would be no need for a keeper.

The line up includes Lionel Messi, as well as three of his Paris St. Germain teammates and of course Verratti himself.

"My dream five-a-side team will be: me, Messi, Ibrahimovic, Maxwell and Thiago Motta,” he told Goal.

"We will play without a goalkeeper," he added. "We are a great team, therefore we will only attack."

Hard to fault such a solid line-up.
