Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho not giving up on World Cup just yet
Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho insists that he hasn't given up hope of making Brazil's squad for the upcoming World Cup, as the domestic season draws to a chaotic end.
The diminutive playmaker, 21, told Placar that he still believes the call from Luiz Felipe Scolari could happen: "The Brazilian national team will always be one of my objectives, and I haven't given up on the World Cup yet."
"I know our manager keeps an eye on everything that is going on, and I am doing my best to deserve a chance."
"Let's see what happens until the squad is called up. I still have the dream of playing the World Cup in Brazil."
Coutinho has impressed this season at Anfield, playing a starring role in their quest to become champions for the first time in over two decades. He has played once for Brazil before, back in a 2010 friendly with Iran.
