World Cup qualification: Coutinho back at the Selecao

After a year of absence due to injuries, Philippe Coutinho is returning to the Brazilian national soccer team. After recovering from a knee injury, coach Tite nominated the FC Barcelona midfielder for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Colombia and Argentina (November 11th and 16th).

“He’s a player who creates moves, a great footballer who finds his form again,” said Tite on Friday about the former Bayern professional. The line-up is led by superstar Neymar from Paris St. Germain. With ten wins from eleven games, Brazil has the ticket for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar close by.
