Who played? Rafael turns out for Man Utd in Fabio boots

Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva played against Fulham yesterday in twin brother Fabio's boots.

The Mail on Sunday says Rafael sparked head-scratching on Saturday when he was spotted playing against Fulham in his brother's boots.

Rafael went on to the pitch at Craven Cottage wearing a pair of bright yellow Nike boots with 'Fabio' stitched on the side.

It quickly sparked a debate over whether Fabio was putting in a double shift after helping QPR claim a goalless draw at Loftus Road earlier in the day.

Or maybe Rafael had turned up in west London without his and had nipped three miles up the road to borrow a pair of brother's boots.
