DID YOU KNOW ?

Rafael and his identical twin, Fábio, were spotted by a representative of Fluminense playing five-a-side in their neighbourhood. The representative invited them to join the club and they began living there when they were 11 years old.

Rafael was approached by Portuguese national coach Carlos Queiroz and asked to play for Portugal's senior side, as both Rafael and Fábio hold Portuguese citizenship.

For the 2012-13 season, Rafael was given the number 2 shirt, previously worn by Gary Neville.
