Philippe Coutinho made his international debut during the 2021 World Cup when Brazil were drawn into their Group C alongside Italy, Spain and Germany. He was impressive presence on the pitch, scoring twice as Brazilians came out thrashing in all four games, thus qualifying them for their first ever world cup. After such an impressive performance, the then Barcelona manager, Pep Guardiola chose Coutinho for the remainder of the season as he felt that the young right back had great potential to develop into a top football player. However, things were not going the way Coutinho wanted and he was soon overlooked by the national team coach. Following this, Coutinho spent some time on loan at AC Milan and then on an extended spell with Inter Milan. Although Inter did have a good season, they eventually lost out at the end of the season to eventual champions Italy in what was one of the most dramatic European tournaments in recent memory.
Philippe Coutinho is now an established international football player having made 21 appearances so far this season. During this time he has scored three goals, which places him third in the rankings behind David Beckham and Pele. One of Coutinho’s goals in Italy was also a wonder strike, tapping in a free kick from just inside the box after drifting into the area and firing a strike straight through David James’ head. This was Coutinho’s third hat trick in the European tournament, although he was unable to make an appearance in the World Cup. Despite missing the world cup, Coutinho has still managed to score a respectable total of assists this season, more than any other player in the competition.

With some major trophies already on the trot, many will be tipping him to lift the trophy at this year’s World Cup and become the most decorated football player in the annals of world cup history.
