Video: Philippe Coutinho Saves Brazil With Late Toe Poke Winner v Costa Rica

Philippe Coutinho saved Brazil with a late toe poke winner against Costa Rica this afternoon.

It was a largely frustrating afternoon for the Selecao as they headed for another draw going into six minutes of injury time in their game.

They drew 1-1 with Switzerland on Sunday in a game they would have been expecting to win and following that up with another draw would have been a major disappointment.

But they were spared that after Coutinho got his second goal of the tournament – and put them in a strong place going into their final match against Serbia.

It was brilliantly created by a Roberto Firmino knockdown as the Barcelona playmaker was on hand to toe poke through Keylor Navas’ legs:

That’s a telling impact from Firmino too, with the Liverpool man nodding down to set up the chance for his teammate.

With Switzerland playing Serbia tonight at 7pm, Brazil will now be able to watch on hoping they get a result that helps their chances of making the last 16 in comfortable fashion.
