Coutinho Still Hoping to Earn World Cup Spot With Brazil

Showcasing positive performance this season with Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho isn’t fully satisfied as just yet, since his main goal in getting a place into Brazil’s World Cup squad is still not fulfilled.

Up till now, Brazil head coach, Luiz Felipe Scolari, still hasn’t show any signs in confirming Coutinho as part of his team for the upcoming tournament, a situation which becomes a concern for the attacking midfielder.

Although acknowledging that every coaches normally have their own preferences, Coutinho is still hopeful that Scolari will eventually consider him as part of Selecao’s World Cup 2014 squad.

“It’s a complicated question. Every coach has his favorites and [current boss Luiz Felipe] Scolari is no different. I still dream about it [the World Cup] and I’m working hard to prove I deserve my chance, but I know there’s a lot of tough competition,” the player said to Placar.

The ex-Inter Milan player actually have enough opportunities to become an important player for Brazil in the future as he is still only 21-year-0ld, but Coutinho is really eager to taste this upcoming World Cup.

Considering the tournament is being played at his home land, Coutinho’s ambition is understandable as many top Brazilian stars also have similar dream.
