Fred: I feel at home in Belo Horizonte
The Minas Gerais-born Brazil striker is looking forward to playing in familiar surrounds against Chile on Saturday.
The former Cruzeiro man was in good spirits when speaking to the media about returning to the state of his birth.
Fred said: "It's always a different energy when I play at Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, I have had great games, scored many goals, it is different, I have more confidence. I know the way, I feel at home here."
