Rafael da Silva Has Aspirations For Brazil National Team

Rafael da Silva does not know for sure if he or his twin brother Fabil da Silva will start in Saturday's Champions League Final match at Wembley Stadium.

However Rafael hopes the honor of being on the squad will help him to get called up for Brazil's national team in the future.

Rafael earned a senior call-up to the national squad last August but is yet to win his first cap.

Neither he, nor twin brother Fabio, are in Brazil's preliminary 28-man squad for this summer's Copa America.

"The Champions League is a world competition. Because we have played in it, the national team recognise me and my brother much more now," said Rafael.

"I was with the national team at the beginning of the season and the more I can play for United, the more chances I hope to get."

"Every Brazilian player likes to go forward. We learn to attack as small boys. That is what we do.

"My heroes were Cafu and Roberto Carlos, who played the same way, as does Dani Alves.

"In Brazil it has always been like that."

Rafael Pereira da Silva and his twin brother Fabio were born 9 July 1990 in Brazil. Both Rafael and Fabio play for Manchester United as defenders in a right back position

Barca and United are regarded as the two top clubs in the world.

It is extremely rare for the two best sides in Europe to meet in the Champions League Final.  In the past three decades, that happened on only four occasions – United-Barca in 2009, Real-Juve 1998, Milan-Barca 1994, and Juve-Liverpool 1985.

Do not miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to watch world-class top-tier players like Messi, Rooney and Chicharito from Manchester Unkited and FC Barcelona play live in the Champions League Final clash on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.
