'Better than Payet' - Liverpool fans in awe of Philippe Coutinho after cracking Brazil goal
The Reds attacker scored an absolute cracker for his country last night as they swept Argentina aside.
Coutinho started in an attacking three for Brazil last night, alongside on-loan Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus and Barcelona star Neymar.
The Liverpool midfield magician produced a moment of incredible quality in the first half to open the scoring for the Selecao:
Neymar added to the lead just before half time, with former Tottenham Hotspur man Paulinho finishing Lionel Messi's team off early in the second half as Brazil ran out comfortable 3-0 winners.
The victory puts Tite's men on top of the South America World Cup Qualifying group on 24 points, while Argentina languish in 6th position on 16 points.
Coutinho's Messi-esque goal got some Liverpool fans extremely excited, thought their West Ham counterparts might not be in agreement:

Not even close.
The Anfield star sparkled throughout the game, with teammate Roberto Firmino coming very close to converting after more wizardry from his Premier League partner-in-crime:
