Frederico Chaves Guedes (born 3 October 1983), known as Fred (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈfɾɛd(ʒ)i]), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Campeonato Brasileiro Série A club Fluminense and played for the Brazil national team.

Fred began his career at América Mineiro before transferring to local rivals Cruzeiro in 2004. After two seasons there, he moved to Lyon of France in a protracted transfer saga, and won three consecutive Ligue 1 titles. He made his international debut for Brazil in 2005 and was selected for the 2006 World Cup, and was also part of their victories at the 2007 Copa América and the 2013 Confederations Cup. Since 2009, Fred has played for Fluminense, where he won two Campeonato Brasileiro Série A titles in 2 years (2010 and 2012) and Campeonato Carioca (2012 – scoring in final).

Fred scored one of the fastest goals in professional football history while playing for América Mineiro, against Vila Nova during a Copa São Paulo de Juniores match. The goal was scored 3.17 seconds after the match started.[3][4]

Club career[edit]

Brazil & transfer saga[edit]

Fred spent four seasons at América-MG of Belo Horizonte, before he left for their city rival Cruzeiro in middle of the 2004 season. As Feyenoord had an agreement with América, the Dutch club got Magrão from Cruzeiro,[5] and retained 10% economic rights on Fred, and Fred himself held 15%.[5]

After scoring 41 goals in 43 games for Cruzeiro in the 2005 season, Fred was signed by defending Ligue 1 champions Lyon for €15 million.[5] (of which €3 million was received by Fred, 5% as a solidarity contribution, €1.4 million to Lyon's agent and €510,913 in Brazilian taxes).[5][6] Feyenoord then claimed Cruzeiro's 10% of the transfer fee, as the club alleged the fee was €1.5 million instead of the €933,908.70 in Cruzeiro's viewpoint.[5] The Dutch club sued to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and won.[5]

Lyon[edit]

With 14 goals in his first season, Fred was the second highest goal scorer in the 2005–06 Ligue 1 season, and won his first league title with Lyon. Although he missed two months of the 2006–07 season,[7] Fred still scored 11 goals in 20 games, and was the club's top scorer as Lyon defended their title. However, during the 2007–08 season, Fred was injured during a training session at the 2007 Copa América.[8] He made his comeback in October 2007, but due to competition with new signing Milan Baroš and youth product Karim Benzema, Fred had limited first team opportunities.

Fred played 15 games out of possible 20 for Lyon in the 2008–09 season. He played his last match for Lyon on 10 January 2009 after he requested to leave the club in December 2008.[9] On 26 February 2009 he was released from his contract with the French club.[10]

Fluminense[edit]

After being released from Lyon and refusing to return from Brazil, Fred signed a pre-contract with Brazilian club Fluminense, and consequently agreed to a five-year deal. He scored twice on his debut on 15 March 2009, as Fluminense beat Macaé 3–1.[11] Later in July 2011, he went on to break the record for most goals in the Brasileiro when he scored a brace against Esporte Clube Bahia, taking his tally to 44 goals. The record was previously held by Magno Alves. On 11 November 2012, Fred scored 2 goals in a 3–2 win over Palmeiras, clinching the 2012 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A for Fluminense.[12]

International career[edit]

Fred made his debut for Brazil as a late substitute in a friendly match against Guatemala on 27 April 2005. He scored his first two international goals on 12 November 2005 in an 8–0 friendly win against the United Arab Emirates.

Although he didn't play during the qualifying campaign, Fred was named in Brazil's 2006 FIFA World Cup squad as a cover for strikers Ronaldo, Adriano and Robinho. After coming on as a substitute, he scored in a 2–0 victory against Australia on 18 June 2006, when he tapped in a shot from Robinho which had rebounded off the inside of Mark Schwarzer's near post in the 90th minute. The result put Brazil into the Last 16 with a game to spare.[13]

Fred playing for Brazil in 2011

In the 2011 Copa América, Fred scored an 89th-minute equaliser against Paraguay in a 2–2 draw. In the quarter-finals, he was one of four Brazil players to miss in a 2–0 penalty shootout loss against the same opposition.

In 2013, Fred was established as Brazil's first choice centre forward by returning manager Luiz Felipe Scolari. On February 6, he scored in a 2–1 defeat to England at Wembley Stadium, and went on to score in the return fixture, becoming the first player to score at the renovated Estádio do Maracanã.[14]

At the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, Fred was the joint top scorer of the tournament with five goals, and was awarded the Silver Shoe.[15] On 22 June, he scored twice against Italy in the in a 4–2 group stage win.[16] He later scored in a 2–1 semi-final victory over Uruguay, and capped his successful Confederations Cup campaign with two goals against Spain in the competition's final to help Brazil to a 3–0 victory.[15]

In May 2014, Fred was named in Brazil's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[17] In the opening match of the tournament, on 12 June against Croatia in São Paulo, Fred dived in the 69th minute,[18] resulting in a controversial penalty, which Neymar converted for 2–1, and their eventual 3–1 win.[19] After receiving criticism for his performances in the opening two matches,[20] Fred scored his only goal of the tournament in the final group match, a 4–1 defeat of Cameroon which qualified the team for the round of 16.[21] He managed just five shots on target at the tournament, in six matches played.[22] Fred's prolonged run of poor form saw the player receive hostile jeers from the home crowd whenever he touched the ball in the 7-1 defeat to Germany in Belo Horizonte.[23] According to Opta Sports, Fred failed to make a single tackle, cross, run or interception during the match, and spent the most time in possession of the ball on the centre spot due to seven restarts and one kick-off.[24] Following Brazil's 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands in the third place match, Fred announced his retirement from international competition.[25] It was reported on 16 September 2014 that Fred came out of retirement, after previously announcing retirement following the criticism he received during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[26]
