, SS, SM --> I'd personally drop CM as he rarely if ever features there when playing for the U17 and Vasco. Sometimes, I feel he plays as an SS coming from the left though...
Attack: 74 --> 71 is simply too low for a player that's always taking offensive positions and is actually quite good at that. He's always involved with Vasco's forward play when playing.
Body Balance: 76
--> Why so freaking weak? I've seen Philippe hold off quite some defenders with an 80's number for Balance and he nearly never loses the ball thanks to his technical ability and decent body strength. He's able to withstand a challenge or two without having to fall down right away. Want proof? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqghoDLE3yg
--> He's able to last 90 minutes. Be it on U17-level so far, he's still played full games for the Brazilian squad there.
--> You can't tell me Philippe's reading is worse than that of Robert Flores, Haris Medunjanin and Gai Assulin.
Dribbling Accuracy: 83
--> He's got really spectacular close control for a kid his age. Possibly worth numbers in the higher 80's if he continues his development.
Curling: 81 --> The amount of curl he generally places into his crosses and shots makes them difficult to save for many goalkeepers.
--> Stellar first touch for a kid his age. Probably better than many other players in Serie B and could be even higher (don't want to overrate the lad).
Team Work: 81
--> 70 is a ridiculous level for a genuine play maker like Coutinho. He is very good at reading the movements of his team-mates and anticipating on them.SPECIAL ABILITIES:*
