Philippe Coutinho’s chances of playing for Brazil at this summer’s World Cup were handed a brutal blow on Tuesday when Felipe Scolari announced his squad for the forthcoming friendly with South Africa.
Liverpool’s playmaker, despite being in wonderful form of late, was overlooked for selection, and many have seen that decision as the final nail in Coutinho’s 2014 World Cup coffin.
Should Coutinho miss the cut, it will definitely be harsh of the Red. So far this season Coutinho has bagged two goals for Liverpool, while the 21-year-old Brazilian has contributed nine assists in all competitions since his arrival on Merseyside.
Looking to highlight just how talented Coutinho is, below is a compilation video of all the Brazilian’s assist for Liverpool.
