"I was in my room with my friends from the U21s. We were on the PlayStation. And then I got a call from the manager of the senior squad. He told me he needed me and that I had to leave Qatar and join up with the seniors in the United States."
"I'm very happy with this new experience, being with the seniors. I'm going to work even harder to get called up again in the future."
Ricardo Carvalho: "Fabinho deserves his call-up to the seniors. He worked really hard last season and has made a big contribution to the team. The whole Monaco squad is proud of him. It's good for the club and for him."
