Liverpool FC star Philippe Coutinho has been left out of Brazila s latest squad for friendlies against Costa Rica and the United States in September, and it is fair to say that the Reds are utterly bemused by the decision.

Coutinho, who was named as the Liverpool FC player of the year and also was a part of the PFA Team of the Year 2014-15, was in the Brazil squad for Copa America and had played three games in the South American championship.

Brazil coach Dunga had said at the time that the player needs to be exposed to more international games.

But it seems that the Brazil manager has now decided to overlook Coutinho despite his recent wonder goal for Liverpool FC that won them the game against Stoke.

It is also fair to say that Liverpool FC fans were surprised that Dunga decided to overlook Coutinho and selected the 33-year-old Kaka in his place.


Some fans, though, were quite pleased with the fact that the Brazil star may be rested and injury free for Liverpool FC
