Brazil's Neymar and Philippe Coutinho prank Selecao mascot Canarinho
Neymar and Philippe Coutinho are with the Brazil national team, limbering up for a World Cup qualifier against Colombia this coming week.
However, during the pregame training session, the pair set aside a little time to prank the Selecao's official mascot, Canarinho the man-sized canary.
Indeed, Neymar and Coutinho teamed up to topple Canarinho using the oldest trick in the book: a true classic from the playbook of every mischievous schoolboy.
Brazil coach Tite will no doubt be hoping his star pairing combine with equally devastating effect in Barranquilla on Tuesday evening.
