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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
