Fred quits international football after Brazil flop

“For me, the Selecao is finished,” the 30-year-old Fluminense forward told the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper.
Fred ended the competition with a solitary goal, and was jeered by Brazilian supporters after being subsituted in Tuesday’s 7-1 semi-final rout in Belo Horizonte.
Fred paid the price for his ineffectiveness in front of goal when being replaced by Jo in Saturday’s third place play-off. The switch failed to have the desired effect, with Brazil losing 3-0 to the Netherlands.
