Paulinho was one of six Premier League players named in Luiz Felipe Scolari's 23-man squad.

He is joined by four Chelsea players - Oscar, Ramires, David Luiz and Willian - and Manchester City's Fernandinho in Brazil's quest to win the World Cup on home soil.

He told Lancenet: "I see that the Premier League is growing and year after year their players are doing their job the best way they can."

Paulinho, who has been linked with a summer move to Chelsea, joined Spurs from Corinthians last summer.

He is advising his Brazilian team-mates to make the most of their time in England while they can.

He said: "It's not because the players that were called up play here, but this is one of the strongest leagues in the world and we have to enjoy the Premier League."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
