Coutinho impresses Pele

Unfortunately we cannot play with all the players we have.” Coutinho is in the Brazil squad for the forthcoming friendlies against France and Chile, which follow Sunday’s match – an encounter Pele will attend as a guest of SUBWAY. “It is going to be a great game, no doubt about that,” he said. “This a top fixture and good to see.” Coutinho is part of the new breed Brazil coach Dunga is trusting to make up for last summer’s World Cup embarrassment. Brazil were not the only country to underwhelm, with England another country failing to meet expectations. The early exit of English sides in Europe has increased concerns over the quality of football in the country, yet Pele is not worried for the home of football. “I think the level of football in England is top,” he said. “Last year there were some surprises, not only with the English team at the World Cup. “I made a lot of interviews in Europe before the World Cup and saw some of Germany’s games, so I said the Germans were very well prepared.” Press Association The talented 22-year-old was seen as a bit of a gamble when the Reds forked out £8.5million to bring him over from Inter Milan.
