Must-See Goal: Coutinho’s screamer opened scoring in Rostov


Brazil definitely has one of the most talented rosters in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and one of their stars opened his account on Sunday.

Philippe Coutinho’s right-footed screamer gave his side a 1-0 lead over Switzerland in Rostov. The Barcelona man picked up a loose ball, gave a touch, and rifled a shot off the right post and in for his first World Cup goal. Swiss keeper Yann Sommer extended to reach the shot but wasn’t close to getting a hand on it.

The goal had Brazil up 1-0 at halftime, but eventually the Swiss battled back for a point thanks to a Steven Zuber header in the second-half. Coutinho will surely not forget this strike anytime soon.
