[Video] Coutinho Tries To Recreate Bergkamp’s Famous Arsenal Goal

By on November 18, 2016

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has tried to recreate Dennis Bergkamp’s famous goal during Arsenal’s win over Newcastle back in 2002.

As part of the BT Sport #GoalsRecreated campaign, Coutinho was given four attempts to pull off what was a sensational piece of skill by the non-flying Dutchman.

I’m sure you all know the goal we’re talking about, when Dennis received the ball with his back to goal, flicked it round Nikos Dabizas, span around the Newcastle defender in the opposite direction before cooly slotting past Shay Given.

It was an exquisite goal and one that few could even attempt under the pressure of a Premier League game, never mind on the training pitch.

Coutinho has been in excellent form for Liverpool this season and being Brazilian, he has a few tricks up his sleeve, so I’m sure he was confident of pulling it off.

Check out how he got on below:

As you can see, it took Coutinho all four attempts before he managed to recreate the goal, and given he was doing it on the training pitch against a defender who wasn’t trying to stop him, it shows us just how gifted Bergkamp was to score that goal in an actual league game.

It will forever go down as one of my all-time favourite goals.
