He has recently played for clubs such as União Bandeirante-PR, Vasco, and Atlético-PR. Fábio was called up to most of Brazil's friendly's in the months of August and September, 2006. Being called up by Brazilian head coach Dunga for a friendly against Norway in Oslo on 16 August 2006, though never had playing time, the game ended 1–1. He was also called up to play against Argentina and Wales on 3 and 5 September 2006, respectively, but again, he did not play in these match, as Gomes remained Brazil number 1 under Dunga at that time.

He was delighted to have been included in one of Brazil's team's in September, but knew exactly where he stood and understood what his role in the team was, and stated he was happy to be part of the squad.

Brazil has great keepers as the level has really gone up over the past few years and we have goalies of the calibre of Rogério Ceni (São Paulo), Fábio Costa (Santos) and Júlio César (Inter-ITA). I just want to calmly do what I can to help the seleção.


He has been fairly successful in his career winning the Copa do Brasil, the Campeonato Brasileiro, and the Copa Mercosur all in the same year, 2000. He has also won two state championship, the Campeonato Carioca, and the Campeonato Mineiro.

Fábio has won a couple of international championships as well. Such as the 1997 U-17 South American Youth Championship and FIFA U-17 World Cup. Along with that he was part of Brazil's winning side in the Copa América 2004, in Peru.

In the first season of 2007, Fabio's performance on the field was inconsistent and very consequential mistakes. In the first leg of the state championship against rivals Atlético, he had his back to the field while the Atletico striker approached the box and scored; Cruzeiro supporters asked for his removal of the starting squad.

Coincidentally, after this same game, Fábio was out for three months for an alleged injury. He played the whole match during which he did not show any sign of severe pain. He returned in the middle of July returned to his starter position, is a current favorite of the Cruzeiro fans and showing signs of recovering his old form. He was on the Brazilian team in 2007.

In November 2007 it was announced that Fabio would extend his Cruzeiro contract until December 2009 after speculation mounted on a possible move in the January 2008 transfer period.[2] In April 2008, it was reported that he would moved to Fiorentina, subject to application on obtaining an EU passport as under descendant status, but the move never happened.[3]
