The Brazilian playmaker was pivotal in his country’s 3-0 victory over their rivals in World Cup qualifying.
He was a constant thorn in the side of Edgardo Bauza’s side and got the home team off and running with a stunning 25th-minute goal.
Running on to Neymar’s pass, Coutinho shifted inside and smashed the ball into the top corner in his now trademark fashion.
The goal needs no explaining – but now legendary beIN Sports commentator Hudson did a brilliant job calling it during their coverage of the game:
It’s fair to say he really rates Coutinho!
His strike was followed up with Neymar’s second before Paulinho added a third to cap the win in Belo Horizonte.
And the win means Brazil now sit top of South American World Cup qualifying with 24 points from 11 games.
A defeat to their rivals is always bad for Argentina, on the other hand, but last night’s result leaves them sitting sixth in the table with just 16 points.
So they’ll have to bank on Lionel Messi and co producing a big turnaround in their remaining games to make sure of an automatic qualification spot.
