Not every Brazilian playing for Liverpool was happy after the Tottenham win…

It was a good day to be a Brazilian red on Saturday.

Roberto Firmino was singled out for praise by Jurgen Klopp, while Philippe Coutinho put in his best performance since returning from injury last month.

As for Lucas Leiva, the 30-year-old put in a superb showing at centre back, stifled Harry Kane and even had time to tweet back a couple of ‘haters’ on social media after the game.

Every one of Liverpool’s Brazil contingent had something to celebrate, then.

Well, not quite.

What of poor Allan Rodrigues de Souza, on loan at Hertha Berlin, who was in action for Brazil Under-20s in the South American Youth Football Championship.

The teenager has been absent for the Bundesliga side for the past month to compete in Ecuador, with his Brazil side making the final round of the competition.

The top four teams would qualify for the Under-20s World Cup, which will take place in May.

After a last-gasp equaliser from Argentina denied Brazil qualification in their penultimate game last week, a stalemate against Colombia on Saturday night means Allan will not be competing at the World Cup in South Korea.

Allan, who had made four appearances for his country during the tournament, will now return to the German capital to resume his season with Hertha.
