Joao Felix is really making a name for himself this season.

The 19-year-old only made his debut for Benfica earlier this campaign but he has been one of the standout performers in the Primeira Liga.

Last Thursday, Félix scored a hat-trick in a 4–2 UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

In the process, he became the youngest ever player at the age of 19 years and 152 days to score a hat-trick in the competition.

And he was at it again on Sunday.

Benfica managed to beat Vitoria Setubal 4-2 to move back on top of the league.

Felix scored the home side's third goal on the night; lashing in a cross from Pizzi into the top corner.

After scoring, Felix then enjoyed a touching moment with his 16-year-old brother.

Terrific stuff. It's a moment that the two brothers will never forget.

Felix has been described by many as the 'next Cristiano Ronaldo', and he admitted earlier this year that it his dream to play alongside him.

"My dreams? I have two great dreams," he told Tuttosport, per CalcioMercato. "I would like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo because he is simply the greatest.

"An idol, a world icon, an example for everyone. Playing with a 'monster' like him would allow me to grow even more.

"The second dream in this 2019, which I hope will be 'golden' for me, is to win the Golden Boy, a fantastic prize, the Ballon d'Or for young players.

"Last year, I remained in contention until the final 40 candidates. This time I want to win it."

Felix has been linked with some of the world's biggest clubs and Felix declared in the same interview that he is not sure about his future.

"My future? It will be a decision that we will make with a mutual agreement. I am not sure.

"Personally, I give the utmost respect to everyone and I am attracted by the big leagues like the Spanish, English, Italian and French one.

"All the best Portuguese players went to play to the most important foreign leagues and, of course, I would like to do it, too."
