DA SILVA GETS BRAZIL CAP

Submitted by isport on Tue, 01/18/2011 - 19:03

Rafael da Silva secured his first ever Brazil cap in the friendly against USA. New Brazil boss Mano Menezes, who took over from Dunga after the Selecao's poor outing in South Africa, named Da Silva in his 23-man squad against the USA in New Jersey.

The football betting markets don't expect him to start, but he may come on as a sub. In comments to his club's website, Da Silva said: "I'm so happy to have been called up to the national team and very proud."

It's my first call and I hope there will be more to come in the future.

Fabio Da Silva and Rafael Da Silva are giving problems to Alex Ferguson in selection, not because of their performances but because of their appearances. Rafael Da Silva returned from the summer break a married man, taking away the Ferguson's ability to tell apart Rafael from his identical twin brother Fabio.

Chelsea have raced out of the blocks and as a result, online football betting doesn't rate United chances to win any silverware this year. With Wayne Rooney flat, United need a spark and that could come as a result of more game time due to the Brazilians.
