Manchester United's Brazilian full-back Fabio Da Silva has said that he is keen on playing at the World Cup in 2014. This World Cup will be held in Brazil, which gives extra motivation for the player to be part of this World Cup.

Speaking to the official magazine of Manchester United, he said that he needs to play regularly in order to achieve his dream. Getting into the Brazilian national team is not going to be easy for both Fabio Da Silva and Rafael Da Silva because of the competition for places.

Marcelo and Dani Alves will be the first choice fullbacks for the country. Beyond them, Brazil also have numerous choices like Maicon as well. Despite this, Fabio is confident that he will be making it into the Brazil squad if he does well with United this season.

The twin brother of Rafael Da Silva spent the last season on loan at QPR where he did well, but he has found first-team opportunities limited at Old Trafford. Rafael recently returned from a spell on the sidelines, but he is expected to regularly play as right back. The presence of Patrice Evra makes it difficult for Fabio to get regular game time at Old Trafford.

"I dream to be there. I will just keep doing my job here and try to play well, and sometime maybe it will happen," said Rafael. "If it doesn’t, I will be writing a letter! I think my brother is good, but still the manager doesn’t call him. I dream as well, but for me I think it’s harder. Last season I had a bad season – well, not a bad season, but the team didn’t do well – and that wasn’t good for me," said his twin brother Fabio Da Silva to United's official magazine only recently.
