Liverpool’s slow but steady progress this season under Jurgen Klopp has been evident for all to see, even if their recent form has wavered somewhat. And although their style of play favours the team over individuals, Philippe Coutinho’s influence when they’re playing well isn’t hard to see.
The Brazilian has been playing a better overall game this season. Previously known for scoring the occasional worldie and little else, he’s worked hard on becoming a better rounded player for the team. However, that didn’t stop him from going back to working on his strengths this week whilst on national team duty.
A video tweeted by @BrazilStats shows the attacker practicing his shooting. Of the three shots he launched at goal, two hit the back of the net whilst the other hit the bar, giving the poor goalkeeper tasked with trying to save those shots an impossible task.
See Coutinho sharpening his already potent shooting skills here:
