His performance in the FC Barcelona leaves a lot that wish, but when you saw the T-shirt of Brazil, Philippe Coutinho is another. The carioca multiplied in the duel against Argentina, in which it encouraged to lead in attack and helped in the defence of Leo Messi
This Wednesday gave in Belo Horizonte a classical of the Glass America, and the Brazil-Argentina was for the 'canarinha'. The goals of Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino resolved a clash contested, that put to the men of Tite in the final of the championship and left to the ones of Lionel Scaloni with the satisfaction of a big performance and the bitterness of another painful defeat.
Between the players of the FC Barcelona that participated stood out a good version of Philippe Coutinho, to the that argues in the Camp Nou by his usual disconnections and to the that in the Stadium Mineirao applauded by his effort. The ex of the Liverpool showed active to lead the attack and sacrificed to help in defence, even supporting to Casemiro in the labelings to Leo Messi, to the that stole two balloons.
The tournament is leaving the feeling that, although it can give more, the carioca has parked his doubts like Barcelona, after a campaign to forget that it could have him sentenced in the City Condal. It is for seeing if his recovery will guarantee him a new opportunity like culé or will open the door to a traspaso millionaire, that would leave space to Neymar and Antoine Griezmann.
Arthur also fulfilled in the room of machines, doing gala of his usual abstemiousness to take out the balloon and contributing a lot of deployment in the tasks of containment. The one of Goiania is a recently arrived and to his 22 years has turned into indisputable for the seleccionador, that does not imagine a team without his organiser by excellence.
Also it deserves a meción special Dani Alves, impressive in spite of his 36 years. The one of Bay follows empeñado in showing that it follows him remaining rope, and this remained more than clear in another exhibition in the right band. The lane keeps on being his natural habitat, and there is few that can argue his command although it no longer have the freshness of antaño. The experience is a degree.
Messi was Messi... But it was not sufficient for Argentina
After some toneless parties and after recognising that it was not to his best level, Messi was Messi... But this did not suffice him to Argentina. In spite of that put in the eliminatory on the horn and split like clear victim in front of Brazil, the 'albiceleste' gave the face, although this was not sufficient to opt to a victory that had guaranteeed him another final.
