VIDEO: Coutinho's wonderful assist for Neymar goal

Coutinho Liverpool

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho set up Neymar for his second goal for Brazil on Tuesday afternoon.

Philippe Coutinho is one of the players tasked with getting Brazil back on track following the embarrassment of this summer's World Cup.

New coach Dunga has made sweeping changes including bringing the Liverpool play-maker back into the fold, and the 22-year-old repaid the faith of his international coach by rolling the ball into the path of Neymar with the outside of his foot, leaving the Barcelona man with just the goalkeeper to beat.

Brazil's main man duly obliged, and the assist will no doubt give Coutinho plenty of confidence going forward.

The Liverpool star is yet to score or assist for his club this season, but doing so on the international stage could give him the boost he needs to return and help Brendan Rodgers' side back up the table.
