They may no longer be club team mates, but Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho still have the connection which made them so loved at Liverpool.

Firmino, who is in the Brazil squad that are currently based in England, partied with Coutinho and their partners at London restaurant Babbo on Friday night. 

The striker was joined by his wife Larissa, while Coutinho’s partner Aine was also present as they posed for a group picture.

Completing the trio of Samba stars beloved at Anfield was Lucas Leiva, the Merseyside cult hero now playing at Lazio, who also featured in the happy snap alongside wife Ariana. 

Firmino accompanied the image with the caption: ‘From Liverpool for a lifetime. I love so much.’

Coutinho joined Barcelona in January. The 26-year-old wasn’t included in the latest Brazil squad due to injury, but his friendship with Frimino saw him join the party.

Firmino meanwhile played the whole game as Brazil beat Uruguay 1-0 at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Friday night and will hope to feature against Cameroon in Milton Keynes on Tuesday. 

The party was at Babbo, the restaurant in which Chelsea and Brazil team mates David Luiz, Willian and Kenedy are partners.

Babbo – meaning ‘father’ in Italian – has become a popular hang-out for Premier League stars since opening in April this year.

Fred, Cedric Soares, Richarlison and Olivier Giroud are among the players who have been seen paying Babbo a visit.

On Friday night it reached new heights as a veritable whos-who of Brazil footballing greats, not least legendary striker Ronaldo, star of the triumphant 2002 World Cup team. 

It certainly looked like a lively party, not least from one image featuring a large chocolate cake and handheld fireworks.
