Fabinho sent a message to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp with a dominant display in Brazil's 2-0 win over USA on Friday night.
The former Monaco man is yet to feature for the Reds, following his £45million summer move to Anfield.
Georginio Wijnaldum has been preferred to the Brazilian in the middle of the Park, but he was selected to represent his nation in an international friendly on Friday, and made full use of the opportunity.
Filling in at right-back - a position he has played in previously while at Monaco - Fabinho caused mayhem down the flank, linked up well with Reds team-mate Firmino, and even drew a penalty, which Neymar dispatched.

Speaking about his performance after the match, the Liverpool midfielder made it clear he is feeling confident heading back to Anfield.
"It was straightforward," said Fabinho. "During the week, the training went well, the technical team know how to guide me, and I also know my team-mates it was easy to play with them.

"At the beginning of the game you have to have patience and I tried to keep things simple to build confidence, but overall it went well."
When asked about playing right-back, he added: "It's not the first time it's happened so I'm used to it. I've done it a few times for my old club."
