On the other hand, Fred has struggled to get regular game time under Erik ten Hag since the 4-0 defeat to Brentford in the Premier League. However, the 29-year-old is an important player for the Selecao. He has formed a decent partnership with Casemiro for Brazil.

Antony celebrates World Cup call-up

Antony has also made it into the squad for his first World Cup with the South American nation. The 22-year-old signed for United in the summer of 2022 from Ajax. And the youngster is delighted to be part of the travelling party to Qatar,

The Brazilian reunited with Ten Hag in Manchester. And he has gotten off to a quick start in a red shirt. The forward scored consecutively in his first three games for the Old Trafford side in the Premier League.

Antony has been ever-present in the starting lineup ever since the Dutch manager got the 22-year-old from the Eredivisie champions. At Ajax, the 22-year-old turned many heads with his performances.

Tite handed the winger his debut for the Selecao in October last year. The youngster came on as a substitute late in the second half against Venezuela in a 3-1 victory in a World Cup qualification match.
