Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho is looking like the favourite candidate to captain his national side due to Neymar’s absence from international duty. 

The Liverpool playmaker has been in fantastic form in recent weeks helping Liverpool secure top 4 and possibly a place in the Champions League via a play off in August. 

Coutinho had one of his best seasons in the Premier League with 13 goals and 7 assists even though he missed 2 months of action..

Here he is in action for Brazil 🔥
