Fred, key piece in Brazil

The Manchester United midfielder has settled in Tite's eleven after setting three good performances in the first dates of the Copa América


Fred had to witness Brazil's comeback from the bench. The coach Tite changed him twenty minutes from the end for Paquetá. The substitution came a few minutes before Firmino and Casemiro signed the comeback against Colombia on the fourth day of the competition. With a full of three victories, the canarinha goes to the quarterfinals of the Copa América 2021.

Despite not being part of the feat, the Manchester United player had another great encounter with his country. Fred made 71 of the 73 passes he attempted and won 11 (55%) of the matches in the game. Also noteworthy are his 10 ball recoveries and his good rapport with Casemiro in the center of the field. During the competition, the two players have met twice in the starting eleven showing their good rapport. However, Colombia did not make it easy for him on Wednesday night, especially the work that Rafael Borré did on the Brazilian.

The midfielder has started in the three matches of Brazil, against Venezuela, Peru and Colombia and did not enter the rotations of the second date of the Copa América against the Gareca team. Tite trusts the Manchester United player and more if you look at his numbers that speak for themselves where he has an average of 9 balls recovered per game and a passing success rate of 77% .

In this Copa América, he is making people forget everything that he experienced a few years ago due to the doping sanction during the celebration of the Copa América in Chile in 2015. This great step was taken a few days before the start of the competition, exactly in the matches qualifiers against Ecuador and Paraguay for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. 444 444

Brazil's next match, against Peru, will not be defining since it has secured the pass and the first place in Group B of the Copa América. Tite could change the eleven again as it happened against Peru and Fred could rest before starting the decisive phase that awards the trophy on July 10.
