Fred desperate to seize Copa America chance

Brazil midfielder Fred is desperate to make the most of an unexpected opportunity after being added to the Selecao’s Copa America squad.

The Shakhtar Donetsk man was originally named on Dunga’s standby list for the tournament, but was promoted to the 23 on Wednesday following news Luiz Gustavo was forced to withdraw from the squad with a knee injury.

The story is too old to be commented.
