Mariano was chosen the best right back of the 2010 Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A by the Placar magazine. He was also selected to the Brazilian national football team on October, 2010, and has been acclaimed as one of the most complete rightbacks of the Brazilian soccer. He has been called up by the Brazilian national football team 2 times, but both teams, he stayed on the bench.
