Hilarious Footage Captures Philippe Coutinho Getting Egged By Teammates in Brazil Training

Hilarious Footage Captures Philippe Coutinho Getting Egged By Teammates in Brazil Training

The most telling sign that Brazil are in a better place going into this World Cup than they were last time comes when judging their reliance on Neymar.

The foursome, starting together for the first time, worked superbly to break down an Austria side who had beaten world champions Germany only a week earlier.

The five-time world champions are feeling quite at home at the Black Sea resort city, enjoying warm temperatures and a private beach.

And with it being Coutinho's birthday on Tuesday, the 26-year-old's Selecao teammates chose to help him celebrate by launching a barrage of eggs and flour at his head, with Neymar seemingly being the lead conductor of the prank.

While Coutinho was chilling doing nothing after his practice, the players attacked the birthday boy by pelting eggs and flour at the Barcelona star.

Their poor run in the 2016 Copa America meant former World Cup victor Dunga was sacked as coach, and replaced with Tite shortly before the 2016 Olympics in Rio, where the football team won the country's first ever gold medal.

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Ederson (Manchester City), Cassio (Corinthians). "That's a plus for us". When Neymar started the next match, he took over the left side and allowed Willian to play in his more preferred role as the right-sided attacker.




They held an open training session at their base in Sochi. Almost 4,000 people were handed tickets to watch the team's first activity on Russian soil. "We are happy that it happened".

And Brazil, as a team, looks ready as well. One young fan invaded the pitch to try to get closer to the players, taking a selfie with midfielder Casemiro before being escorted out. The country's soccer federation went out of its way to secure the coveted location even before it knew where the team would be playing its matches. His astonishing skill drew gasps and applause from the press pack, registering every move and detail of Brazil's final preparations for the World Cup.

The French meanwhile could easily build two or three sides made out of quality players but that's not enough to see them reach the semis according to Mourinho. Silva's PSG colleague Marquinhos would be forgiven if he feels gutted: he played the majority of the games under Tite as the Brazilians kept 16 clean sheets in 21 occasions. "We have worked on playing out of defense", said Tite's assistant Cleber Xavier.

Eager to put their humiliation on home soil in 2014 firmly behind them, the Brazilians appear confident and at ease in surroundings which in this lush part of Russian Federation are not completely unlike home.

Neymar's goal saw him join Romario in equal third on Brazil's all-time goal scoring list.

Brazil was heavily favored to win the title in Germany with a team that included Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Kaka and Adriano, but it was eliminated by France in the quarterfinals.
