Birthday boy parties on Copacabana beach.
Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho was not selected in Brazil’s World Cup squad.
The crafty midfielder, who is celebrating his 22nd birthday today, had enjoyed a fine season in the Premier League, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.
His omission from Luiz Felipe Scolari’s 23-man party surprised a lot of fans.
Despite missing out on a playing role at Brazil 2014, Coutinho will be close to the action.
He is currently in the South American country and, after creating an Instagram account earlier this week, he has shared some images of what he has been up to.
