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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
