Playin Soccer: Highlights of young Coutinho with Brazil national teams

Awesome Tip: Highlights of young Coutinho with Brazil national teams

Once upon a time — Philippe Coutinho was a rising star for the Brazil national team. His playmaking ability already apparent, the 16-year-old midfielder raised eyebrows with a stellar performance for his country’s Under-17 national team at the 2008 Mediterranean International Cup, which Brazil won.

Two years later, Coutinho got his first taste of FC Barcelona — not as one of its players, but as an opponent. As an 18-year-old, the Rio de Janeiro native was picked for Brazil’s senior national team to play in a friendly against Barça B at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper — where Coutinho will now train daily with his new blaugrana teammates.

The Barça B–Brazil friendly featured a bevy of international stars. Coutinho was joined on that Brazil squad by big names like Dani Alves, Adriano, Robinho, David Luiz, Pato, Fernandinho, and Thiago Silva. The Barça B side that day featured current first team player, Rafinha.

Philippe Coutinho, ya desde muy pequeño, ha demostrado la gran calidad que tiene. El crack brasileño ha llegado al FC Barcelona para seguir ofreciendo su magia, pero no será la primera vez que lo haga en el territorio catalán. El nuevo fichaje azulgrana participó con Brasil sub-17 en la Mediterranean International Cup (MIC), donde lograron imponerse y ganar el trofeo, dejando innumerables muestras de su gran calidad.

Además, dos años después, Coutinho visitó la Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper, esta vez ya con la absoluta, para enfrentarse al Barça B -Entrenado por Luis Enrique- en un amistoso. El partido finalizó con triunfo brasileño por 0-3, en una selección donde aparte de Coutinho también estaban jugadores como Dani Alves, Adriano, Robinho, David Luiz, Pato, Fernandinho o Thiago Silva, entre otros. Por parte del Barça B jugó el actual miembro del primer equipo, Rafinha Alcántara, además de otros jugadores como Masip, Marc Bartra o Carles Planas.

En los dos vídeos siguientes, disfruta con las mejores acciones de Philippe Coutinho en sus inicios, con sólo 16 y 18 años respectivamente. Un jugador que ya demostraba su gran talento y que ahora, con 25 años, se encuentra en el mejor momento de su carrera, y ya es uno de los mejores jugadores del mundo.
