Ex-Brazil striker: Fred performances are improvingFred's performances have been criticised
Serginho Chulapa has defended Fred and offered some kind words about his movement in the World Cup hosts' second-round match.
The retired forward, who played for Brazil in the late 1970s and early 80s, believes that Fred is not receiving the best service from his teammates.
Chulapa told GloboEsporte.com: "We don't all like Fred yet, but one thing you can be sure: the ball is not coming [to Fred]. In my opinion, his participation against Chile was better. He went over and gave options."
