Agreed that he played well and it should restore some confidence back in himself. He's not had a great season when he's played for the most part, and he can be happy with his contribution today. Unlucky not to score at the end of the first half also.
Rafael just gets better every time he plays, and its a joy to watch him. I can see him adding a few goals to his game soon also. I'd be interested to see him take a freekick.
