Manchester United midfielder Fred was outstanding for Brazil in their World Cup qualifying win against Uruguay.

Fred impressed in a flexible midfield role on the day.

“We talk a lot about this role of second defensive midfielder. In Europe, you say it's a box-to-box," he told UOL.

"You participate in the ball getting out and are able to participate more in the attack. If you lose the ball at the front, you're already there to challenge for the ball. I really like to play like this. I prefer it, my ideal position is to get more involved in the attack."

"Very happy for the victory, a great game," he added. "It was one of the best matches I played for the national team, participating a little more in the attack.

“When it comes to defending, don't lose the ball, and press, defending well. It was a great game for everyone. I'm very happy."
