Football Friendlies

The moment Philippe Coutinho reminded Anfield of his quality during Brazil 2-0 Croatia

There was a lot of buzz heading into Brazil’s friendly match with Croatia at Anfield on Sunday, and for several different reasons.

Football fans were anticipating the long-awaited return of Neymar to action after months injured and Roberto Firmino got a chance to play for his country at the home of his club.

However, the match, which Brazil won 2-0, saw Philippe Coutinho return to Merseyside for the time since leaving Liverpool for Barcelona back in January.

The Brazilian has settled in nicely at the Nou Camp, registering ten goals, five assists and already winning both La Liga and the Copa del Rey.

After receiving a fairly mixed reception before kick-off, Coutinho produced a moment to remind Reds fans in the crowd of just how technically gifted he really is.
