Brazil striker Fred believes that his team could capitalise on Chile's lack of height when the two teams meet in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.

Brazil striker Fred has revealed that he has instructed his teammates to deliver high balls into the penalty area when they play Chile on Saturday.

The two South American sides face each other in the opening match of the World Cup knockout stages, and the Fluminense forward has indicated that the hosts could look to take advantage of their opponents' lack of height.

The 30-year-old told reporters: "I've talked to our full-backs, our wingers. They are short. With our height, free kicks could be a good weapon for us."

Fred has scored once in three games during the tournament.
