WC2018: Liverpool pair Coutinho, Firmino join Barcelona ace Neymar on Brazil scoresheet

Liverpool duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino starred in Brazil's thumping victory over Bolivia on Thursday.

Brazil squared off against Bolivia in a World Cup qualifier in Natal on Thursday and the Selecao managed to claim a thumping 5-0 victory on the night.

The stars of the show for Brazil were Barcelona's Neymar and Reds ace Coutinho, who both got their names on the score sheet, while another Anfield star in Firmino also got into the act after coming off of the bench to find the back of the net.

Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis and prolific Palmeiras youngster Gabriel Jesus, who joins Manchester City in January, tallied his third international goal in his third appearance for the Canarinho.
