An extremely successful performance by Philippe Coutinho for Brazil. The Seleção , including the FC Bayern forward, beat South Korea 3-0 in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. Coutinho stood out with an enormously impressive display. The 27-year-old set up the opening goal scored by Lucas Paqueta (9') with a great dribble. On 36 minutes, O Magico, who played the full 90 minutes, doubled the lead for Brazil with a delightful goal from a free kick.

After the 1-0 defeat to Argentina on Friday, Brazil again had reason to celebrate against South Korea on Tuesday including for Coutinho’s strike from a free kick.
