Seleção striker Fred not happy despite scoring in Fluminense’s 1-1 draw on Wednesday night

Fred is satisfied yet - Action Images

Fred scored a late equaliser against Cabofriense to ensure Fluminense didn’t suffer an embarrassing defeat in the State Championship on Wednesday night and after the game he revealed his relief at scoring.

The national team striker has endured a difficult last six months. Firstly suffering from a number of injuries and then returning to the starting team but initially struggling for form.

Although the 30-year-old wasn’t back to his best on Wednesday, it was important for him to be back among the goals.

Fred told Lancenet.com about the match, he said: “I’m glad we got the goal in the end.

“Our team were better second half, we put four strikers on to see if it could make an impact and it paid off.

“I’m not happy because we did not win, but the goal gives me more peace of mind to get selection.”

Luiz Felipe Scolari called the Fluminense striker into his squad for the friendly match against Brazil this week.

That all but confirmed Fred’s place in Scolari’s final World Cup squad assuming he rediscovers his best form and stays injury free.

Fred missed some good chances against Cabofriense and admits that is why they failed to win.

“In the first half we had three clear chances,” added the Brazil forward. “And in the second half too.

“I had just the keeper to beat and nodded wide. Everything we wrong. At least we did not lose.”
