Synechdoche
A figure of speech is which a part is used to represent the whole, the whole for a part, the specific for the general, the general for the specific, or the material for the thing made from it.

Brazil won the soccer match.

Give us this day our daily bread.

All hands on deck.

“The daily press, the immediate media, is superb at synecdoche, at giving us a small thing that stands for a much larger thing.”
(Bruce Jackson)
