Man Utd midfielder Fred set for Brazil chance

Manchester United midfielder Fred is in line to start for his country at the World Cup.

The Brazilian was on the bench as his nation claimed a 2-0 win over Serbia in the first group stage game.

However, an injury to Neymar will result in a reshuffle, which may see Fred come into the starting line-up against Switzerland.

Newcastle's Bruno Guimaraes is another who could get a call up into the side.

Brazil played with Casemiro and Lucas Paqueta as their two central midfielders in the first game.

However, they may revert to a more balanced lineup with either Fred or Guimaraes, per The Mirror.
