Neymar and Coutinho were one of the main driving forces behind Brazil's scintillating qualifying campaign.

The wealth of attacking talent Brazilian head coach Tite has at his finger tips in the run up to the 2018 World Cup is actually quite terrifying.

The Selecao were the first team to qualify for the world showpiece after breezing through what would normally be an extremely tough South American qualifying pool. The five times World Champions finished ten points clear at the summit of the log, scoring 41 times and conceding just eleven.

Brazil are easily one of the favourites for footballs biggest prize come July next year and will without a doubt be right in amongst in the final rounds. 

Just to strike a little more fear into the hearts of potential opposing defenders the Brazilian team's official Twitter released a video of two of the most talented footballers in the world, showcasing exaclty why they are known as such.

Neymar, the world's most expensive player after signing for Paris Saint-Gemain in the summer, is shown scoring a beautiful dipping free kick passed the hapless goalkeeper during training. However, Philippe Coutinho, the leading scorer from outside the area in the Premier League since August 2016, was not to be outdone, stepping up to slot a lovely curving strike of his own.

With the likes of Coutinho, Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Dani Alves, and Marcelo all set to line up in the famous yellow shirt together in Russia, it is no wonder that the Selecao are being tipped as many peoples best bet for the title.

It must be quite a good feeling knowing that you have two of the best free kick takers in the world to choose from. However, there may be a bit of an issue in deciding who gets to take the free kicks when they present themselves, considering the CV's of the potential takers!


The only people who might not enjoy the video, other than goalkeepers across the world, would be Barcelona fans, who have been blessed with another example of what they are missing out on!
