The new Barça midfielder is put to the test in a game that challenges him to identify some of Barça’s most famous Brazilian players
It’s been just over a month since Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool and became the 33rd Brazilian player to join the ranks of FC Barcelona’s first team. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind five weeks in which the 25-year-old Brazilian has been slowly adapting to his new team and city.
Among the biggest highlights was his Barça debut, which came at Camp Nou on January 25th in Barça’s 2–0 win over Espanyol in the Copa del Rey quarterfinals second leg. And more recently, on February 8th, Coutinho scored his first Barça goal, which came in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals against Valencia.
So now that he has gotten some of the inevitable early jitters out of the way, clearly having settled in with ease, we felt it was time to challenge him to a game involving a little bit of Barça history.
Can Coutinho identify the blurred out pictures of some of Barça’s all-time most recognizable Brazilians? Check out the video and see for yourself!
