Coutinho Declares Himself “100% Fit” for England Clash

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho insists he is now “100% fit” for Tuesday’s friendly against England at Wembley. Coutinho missed Friday’s 3-1 win over Japan as well as Liverpool’s last three matches with a groin strain.

But Coutinho has been in full training since Thursday and says he is fit to face England, “Unfortunately, I could not play for Liverpool in the past three games because of injury. Now I feel 100 percent fit.

“I have recovered and I am in a good shape to be available for the game against England. I never want to miss any Brazil games. I am honoured to wear this shirt whenever I can. England will be our first European opponent under Tite. We are looking forward to battling with them.

“They have a lot of quality players who operate in a top league like the Premier League. It will no doubt be a difficult encounter.” Coutinho says he is grateful to England for giving him the chance to play in the Premier League and improve his game.

“Every day, I work harder than before to improve myself and become a better all-around footballer. Thanks to football, I live in England today. Thanks to football, I am able to feed my family. Football has been very generous for me.”
