Brazil striker Fred got his first goal just in the whisker of time at the World Cup and is attributing the change in fortunes to the new mustache . But the much criticized striker said there was more to it. "As incredible as it seems, the ball came in hard and it ended up hitting my mustache ," Fred said. "It was a mustache goal." Neymar said he was the one who told Fred not to shave his upper lip, predicting it might turn things in his favor. "I said, 'Come on, Fred, if you leave the mustache you are going to score, the mustache never fails .'"
