Philippe Coutinho's first-ever World Cup goal was beautiful (VIDEO)

By

Philippe Coutinho picked the perfect time to score the first goal of his career in a World Cup match.

Coutinho opened the scoring in Sunday’s game against Switzerland in the 20th minute with an absolute rocket.

The ball caromed off a Swiss defender, outside of the box, where Coutinho was waiting. He stepped into the ball and struck it perfectly — off the post, into the net.

It ended up being Brazil’s only goal of the match.
