Liverpool play-maker Philippe Coutinho has revealed his hopes for the future when it comes to the Brazil national team.
The 22-year-old was overlooked for his country’s World Cup campaign, but this season he has featured for Brazil in friendly matches against Colombia and Ecuador.
That taste of international football has given the Liverpool man hopes that he can ensure he is part of his country’s future from here on, as he revealed in a recent interview with the club’s official website.
“It’s a dream for me personally to be back in the national squad,” Coutinho said, “it’s the dream of any Brazilian player, but the most difficult part comes next.
“What we’ve got to do now is stay in the squad until the next World Cup.”
Coutinho will know just how hard a task that will be, given the amount of talented young footballers out there and the fact that, as a play-maker, he plays in arguably one of the positions most young Brazilian’s aspire to occupy
But with Liverpool’s squad having the potential to become one of the best young sides in Europe, Coutinho will know he is at the right club, under the tutelage of the right manager, as he looks to ensure his dreams come true and he makes the next World Cup squad.
By then he will be 26, and possibly at the peak of what is currently a very promising career.
