Fabián represented Mexico in several youth categories. He was in the initial roster for the 2011 Copa América, but was expelled from the team and suspended for six months along with six other players, for breaking disciplinary codes at their concentration hotel in Quito, Ecuador. In 2012, as a competitor of the Mexico U-23 team, Fabián helped Mexico qualify to the 2012 Summer Olympics and win the 2012 Toulon Tournament, where he was the top scorer. Fabián was part of Mexico's roster who won the Olympic gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

During the Gold Cup 2011 he was named as one of the replacements for the 5 players who tested positive for clenbuterol, but would only be called to join them in an emergency, because he was already in concentration with the U-22 in preparation for the Copa America.[3][4]
