Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has stated that he is back in shape and ready for the clash against England.
The attacking midfielder missed the Selecao’s 3-1 win over Japan, with the match against England slated for his return.
Coutinho seems to be in perfect condition and the Brazil international is primed for the Wembley clash.
“Unfortunately, I couldn’t play for Liverpool in the last few games because of injury,” Coutinho said at a press conference on Sunday.
“Now I feel 100%. I have fully recovered and I am in a good shape to be available for the match with England.”
“England will be our first European opponent under Tite. We are looking forward to competing against them,” he said.
“They have a lot of quality players who play in the Premier League, an important competition. It will certainly be a difficult match.
“The are not weakened by having young players in the side. Those who come in and get chance to play will be desperate to do their best to take the opportunity.”
He continued: “It’s a very important game for all of us. To play in England, near my family, in a big stadium, we certainly expect a good game and a great spectacle.”
