Liverpool star scores sensational wonder goal

Published 1 Comments

Since his arrival at Anfield from Serie A outfit Inter Milan in January, Brazilian attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho has endeared himself to Liverpool fans with his confident displays in the Premier League.

The 21-year-old has impressed fans and pundits alike with several strong performances for Brendan Rodgers' outfit and he was sorely missed by his teammates during his recent lengthy absence after undergoing shoulder surgery.

However, Coutinho - who signed from Inter for a fee believed to be in the region of £8.5 million - has picked up where he left off since being restored to the first team upon his recovery and even scored Liverpool's first-half opener during their 3-3 draw with fierce rivals Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Although it was barely needed, Coutinho provided another example of his enduring class by scoring a truly wonderful goal during training this week.

The diminutive playmaker controlled the ball on the corner on the edge of the penalty area and effortlessly stroked a wonderful shot that nestled into the very top right-hand corner of the net.

The goalkeeper could only watch rooted to the spot as the magnificent effort curled wonderfully past him.

While it may not quite be as spectacular as Ravel Morrison's effort that went viral last week, it is still certainly worth watching.

Watch the fabulous goal above - with thanks to 101 Great Goals and Coutinho's Liverpool teammate Michael Ngoo, who uploaded the video via his Instagram account.
