Cork City U19 star Denzil Fernandes (18), from Drimoleague, will be in action against Italian giants AS Roma in the UEFA Youth League next week, but before that he answered the questions that – ahem – really matter …

How would your best friend describe you? Determined, passionate, talented and kind.


Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? There were so many. If I had to say one, it was Cristiano Ronaldo.


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: When we were on break at primary school, we played soccer as usual, and I decided to do a bicycle kick with the supervision of my principal. For some reason he sent me in for the rest of the break … for a bicycle kick! It was funny enough, to be honest.


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? The Malton Hotel in Killarney. 


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? Boat, food, water.


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? Playing twice with the West Cork Schoolboys League in the prestigious Kennedy Cup, which was held in Limerick, because scouts from England would come and watch you play.


What song best describes you? Hall of Fame by The Script.


What is your least favourite word? Don’t have a least favourite word, but some people say ‘moist’ is theirs so I’ll go with that. 


What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Knock, knock. Who’s there? Cow says. Cow says who? Cow says moo, silly!


What’s the world’s greatest invention? Contact lenses even though I never use them.


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? A soccer charity match between family and friends, and dinner, and a gathering between all of us to end the day. 


A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? These questions are so hard, but he’s wearing it because he’s going sunbathing and asks, ‘where’s the sunscreen?’ (And no, I didn’t get it off the internet!)
