Coutinho Scores In Liverpool Friendly Victory

Philippe Coutinho scored his second goal of preseason as Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners over an Indonesian XI on their Asian tour.

Coutinho opened the scoring and Raheem Sterling added a second in the final minutes to seal the win for the Reds as they prepare for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

The Brazilian slalomed past two defenders via a fortunate bounce of the ball and coolly slotted a finish past the advancing goalkeeper.

Lucas Leiva was also deployed alongside Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in what was a comfortable second half.

Both Brazilians made way in the second half in a raft of substitutions and Jordon Ibe's superb run set up Oussama Assaidi to square a pass to Sterling for the second goal.

The Reds will now head to Australia as they prepare to take on Melbourne Victory in the next stage of their preseason tour.
