Much-maligned centre-forward is on track for Golden Boot, after sweeping home lovely golazo for Brazil.
Hefty Fluminese centre-forward Fred answered his pre-match critics emphatically, with well-taken two goals in the Confederations Cup final against Spain.
First, the 29-year-old bundled home from close range before planting this low finish past Iker Casillas at the beginning of the second half.
Sergio Ramos has just missed a penalty for Spain, who are in danger of being overrun in the Maracana.
It’s 3-0 Brazil with 35 minutes to play.
