Coutinho has just scored his first La Liga goal and it was an absolute screamer

We've seen him do this before.

He must have a foot like a traction engine!

Coutinho has scored his first La Liga goal for Barcelona tonight in their thrashing of fellow Catalan side Girona.

Was it worth the wait?

Of course it was.

He picks the ball up in the inside left position before dummying to drift out wide. The full-back gets too tight and that’s when Coutinho does what Coutinho does; a quick drop of the shoulder, a smart Cruyff, half a yard opens up and then bang.

Dipping, swerving, bending and flying off of the inside of the post.

In the immortal words of Alan Partridge, that, was a goal.
