New, comments

Brazil have gotten off to a rough start to the 2016 Copa America Centenario. It's taken them 105 minutes to find their first goal of the special anniversary tournament. Who else but Liverpool's own star Philippe Coutinho to get the Selecao on the board against Haiti in their second group match?

Coutinho, in his second start of the tournament, got Brazil's first goal in stunning fashion on Wednesday night. Phil picked up possession on the left side of the field, dribbled past a defender, cut onto his right foot and smashed a finish to the near post for a sensational goal:

It's Coutinho's second ever goal for Brazil and it's a huge one as the world-famous nation try to find their way to the knockout stage of the Copa America Centenario. It's great to see the Liverpool man show up on the big international stage when given the chance.
