Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool’s fleet footed wizard, has been in the form of his life this season. And after a recent MOTM performance against Watford in the League, he was called up to Tite Andrade’s Brazil squad for the SuperClasico against bitter rivals Argentina.
Starting on the right of the attacking three, Coutinho proceeded to absolutely dominate any Argentina player in sight. The Liverpool man opened the scoring with a trademark rocket from outside the box, and was brilliant throughout the match, finding pockets of space through his close control and nimble-footed navigation.
The Liverpool man made it look so easy and in one such passage of play, dropped Di Maria on the floor with a superb body fake.
