Philippe Coutinho scored twice in Brazil’s 3-0 win over Bolivia at the Copa America on Friday and spoke about the game after the match.

Tite’s men were booed by supporters at half-time after a goalless opening 45 minutes, but Coutinho did not seem too bothered by it all.

“Being jeered by the crowd is part of football. The Brazil fans ask a lot of us because they want us to play well.

”The important thing is to be strong so that we can play better, which is what we did after scoring the first goal.

“It was hard, like all the opening games in a tournament. After the goal, we started to play better. Tite told us that we had to have more patience and adjust to the playing style.”

It’s not the first time Coutinho has felt the wrath of supporters this season, but his two goals in the second half will be a great boost to the Brazilian after a tough season.
