The playmaker is back in the Brazil squad after the withdrawal of two Chelsea players.
The mercurial playmaker has been the star of the Liverpool team so far this season, helping to fill the void left by club legend Steven Gerrard.
However, despite his form for Liverpool, he continues to have a fractious relationship with international football.
Coutinho made his debut for Brazil in a friendly against Iran in 2010 but then had to wait four years for his next game.
Despite his form for his club he continues to be left out of the national team.
But despite his recent rejection, he has now been pulled back into the squad. Chelsea players Oscar and Ramires have, predictably, pulled out of the Brazil squad because of injury for the upcoming friendlies with Costa Rica and USA.
The midfielder has also shown that he is not bitter about the original rejection, he is clearly ecstatic, as he should be.
He sent out this message on Twitter after receiving the good news about his recall:
I'm happy to have another opportunity to play for the Brazilian National Team.
