Have Rafael and Fabio played together in a first team match yet? Be it Prem/Champs or Carling Cup?

I believe they have played together during a pre-season game, I wish we would utilize rafeal more, he's fantastic!

I think they were both on the pitch against Peterborough in a pre season friendly.

I don't think Fabio has played a competitive game yet though due to his shoulder injury.

Rafa has played more and has appeared in 8 competitve games so far this season and scored a cracker of a goal vs Arsenal and has played in the EPL, League Cup and Champions League.

Fabio has not featured yet in any competitve games thanks to his shoulder injury but could appear in the next League Cup quarter final tie vs Blackburn. He has scored a wonder goal in the reserves which I saw on youtube somewhere and also looks to be a hot wonderkid prospect like Rafa and I cannot wait till he plays in the 1st team. The rumor is in Brazil is that Fabio is better than Rafa and he was also the U-17 Brazil captain and is a dead ball specialist and can even score headers from corners - get well soon kid!

Apparantely before they came it was fabio that looked the better. But I have been hugely impressed with Rafa. The ting is the RB position is up for grabs. Fabio will have to be something special to even challenge Evra for a LB spot.

They played together against Peterborough I think, as Blade said.

Fabio hasn't played yet in a competitive game because of injury, as Blade also said.

However, if Fabio is indeed better than Rafael as I and several others have heard, we're in for some treat it seems.

Hmm ... Fabio may be better but 8 games is quite a bit of experience at that age, it doesn't really matter though, Rafael, with all due respect to Gary Neville and Wes Brown, doesn't have that much competition and is soon to be an automatic starter, Fabio, on the other hand, will have to wait a bit.

you are right, fabio has more competition but imo he has more talent than rafael, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
