Back in 2016, Coutinho also picked his dream 5-a-side team for UEFA.

On that occasion the Brazilian was able to select anyone from world football, not just his present or former team mates.

Reds talisman Steven Gerrard was the first name out of Coutinho’s mouth.

Luis Suarez also made the cut, while he was joined by his Barcelona colleagues Leo Messi and Neymar.

Coutinho’s final pick was Cristiano Ronaldo.
