Coutinho is now one of the first names on Brazil’s team-sheet, which is a huge compliment considering the wealth of attackers at his country’s disposal.
Last night, he dazzled in Brazil’s 4-1 win away at Uruguay, coming in from the right-wing to pick up dangerous positions in the middle.
One particular dribble has been highlighted and is circulating the internet at a rate of knots!
Coutinho nutmegs one midfielder, before stopping, and skinning another to draw a foul. It’s a show of his wondrous ability.
We just hope to see it back in a red shirt again soon.
