Phillippe Coutinho spoke about Neymar and the attributes he brings to the Brazil squad.

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho says Neymar is crucial to Brazil ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Paraguay.

Coutinho was asked about the Barcelona forward in a news conference before the game, which takes place on Tuesday. 

It comes just three days after Neymar said Coutinho would "totally fit" at the Camp Nou, when asked which Premier League player he would like to see at Barca.

Paulinho admitted his surprise after scoring a hat-trick against Uruguay in their World Cup Qualifier in Montevideo.

Brazil right-back Dani Alves says Brazil are still developing despite their impressive 4-1 victory at Uruguay in World Cup qualifying on Thursday.

Midfielder Paulinho scored a hat trick and Neymar added another goal as Tite's unbeaten side fought back from an early Edinson Cavani penalty to take home an historic win over the second-placed Uruguayans and all-but-secure their place in Russia.

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho would 'totally fit' Barcelona - Neymar

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique had an unusual problem to deal with in a recent press conference, a sleeping journalist!

Barcelona and Brazil star Neymar says Philippe Coutinho would "totally fit" at the Camp Nou, and counted his countryman as a Premier League player he would like to see join the Blaugrana.

Neymar and Coutinho are in Uruguay ahead of Brazil's top-of-the-table World Cup qualifier against La Celeste on Thursday.

However, the former Santos man said in a pre-recorded interview with PokerStars that he sees the Liverpool maestro as natural to one day put on a Barcelona shirt, despite having recently...

Recent success follows Brazil, Uruguay in World Cup qualifier

Uruguay's head coach Oscar Tabarez and defender Sebastian Coates admit to being worried about Brazil's Neymar.

Brazil will look to continue their winning run under coach Tite, while Uruguay will try to protect their unblemished home record in 2018 World Cup qualifiers when the two teams meet on Thursday.

Tite, who was hired in June, has led Brazil to six consecutive victories and helped them claim the top spot in the CONMEBOL standings after 12 rounds.

They have outscored opponents 15-1 with Tite in charge, including a 3-0 victory away at Ecuador in his first game, a 5-0 win against Bolivia in October in...

From crisis to cruise control: Tite has Brazil on course for 2018 World Cup

Tite, in white, has worked wonders in reviving Brazil's World Cup qualification campaign.

Nine months ago, a trip to the Estádio Centenário in Montevideo was hardly something the Brazilian Football Confederation would relish. At that point in World Cup qualifying, many believed the Selecao would be concerned about their prospects given their abysmal start on the road to Russia: as things stood at the time, they were outside the playoff zone and risked missing out.

Uruguay away still is a tough gig, mind you, despite the absence of the suspended Luis Suarez. But the weight on Brazil's...

Neymar has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could play in the Premier League one day if he ever decides to leave Barcelona for new pastures.

The Brazil international is enjoying his fourth season at Barca since joining from Santos in 2013 and signed a new five-year-deal at the end of last year.

Prior to committing his future to the Catalan club he had been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and he even admitted that he had listened to what the French champions had to say last summer.
