Nantes defender Fabio da Silva is relishing the prospect of going head-to-head with his twin brother Rafael on Saturday.
Fabio, in a series of Twitter posts on his club’s official account, said: “This will be the first time I play against my twin brother @orafa2.
“It was my dream to play with him – that was the case – and it will be nice to play against him too.”
Fabio is yet to make a competitive appearance for the club he joined from Middlesbrough during the summer but insists he is raring to go after an injury-hit 2017/18 campaign.
He said: “I feel good. I’ve played several training matches, I’m ready.
“I have prepared myself very hard, I have been well-surrounded, I have no worries for the future. I am confident and I now feel 100 per cent ready.”
