Phillipe Coutinho has earned a place in Dunga’s first Brazil squad following the Brazil legend’s managerial reinstatement report Sky Sports.

Coutinho, 22, has been in sparkling form during Liverpool’s pre-season campaign and has obviously caught the eye of Dunga. It will come as no surprise to Premier League fans as the silky midfielder’s dazzling performances since his £8million move from Inter Milan prompted bewilderment as Scolari omitted him from this year’s World Cup 23 man squad.

Brazil play Colombia in Miami on September 5th before facing Ecuador in New Jersey four days later. Liverpool fans will be excited to see how their golden boy fares. Coutinho has 1 full international Brazil cap.
