Sao Paulo's Luis Fabiano proving that age is no barrier
Luis Fabiano has ignored claims about his age and reached the ten game mark for Sao Paulo quicker than he has ever done in his entire career- and bagged himself six goals into the bargain.
Former Sevilla striker Fabiano, now 33 years of age, rejoined the club after spells in Portugal and Spain and has rolled back the years with his Paulista form in 2014.
The man with 45 caps and an impressive 28 goals for Brazil has played in ten games almost two months quiker than he managed last year and, with Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari publicly announcing that he is looking at alternative options for injury-plagued first-choice striker Fred, Luis Fabiano is not doing himself any harm at all by continuing to play and score consistetly for Tricolor.
In 2010, Fabiano was one of the fewe Brazil players to emerge from South Africa with a positive report card and would appear to be in contention to represent the Selecao a bit closer to home in 2014.
