Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat has sprung several surprises in his star-studded dream team as he partnered himself with a Ballon d'Or winner up-front.
Billiat, 30, has developed into one of the leading names in African football over the past decade since his arrival from Zimbwean outfit CAPS United when he joined Ajax Cape Town.

As a skinny teenager, Billiat terrorised defences over three seasons with his pace and direct running before his talent was refined under Pitso Mosimane at Mamelodi Sundowns where he lifted seven trophies over five seasons.
His famed partnership with Leonardo Castro and Keagan Dolly dubbed the 'CBD' saw Masadawana dominate the domestic scene before the introduction of Percy Tau into their attack went on to conquer the CAF Champions League.
Kaizer Chiefs then lured him away from Chloorkop where he became one of the highest-paid players in the league but none of his former teammates has made his Dream XI.
Speaking to Kaizer Chiefs official Youtube channel Billiat listed Lionel Messi on the left-wing and snubbed five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo - who's iconic celebration he often produces when scoring.
But he did, however, include one of the greatest football talents of all-time when selecting the chief creator who'd play just off him as he selected himself as the lone-striker.
