Joelinton, the dynamic midfielder from Newcastle United, has made headlines by earning his first call-up to the Brazilian national team. This remarkable achievement marks a significant milestone in the 26-year-old’s career, which has seen a dramatic transformation over the past 18 months.

When Eddie Howe took over as Newcastle’s manager in November 2021, Joelinton was primarily a striker. However, his versatility and work ethic saw him quickly become an integral part of Newcastle’s midfield. His transformation from a high-profile transfer flop to one of the Premier League’s most industrious No 8s has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Joelinton’s performances have been instrumental in Newcastle’s successful campaign this season. He has made 32 league appearances as Newcastle finished in the Champions League for the first time in 20 years. His last representation for his country was back in 2012 when he won four caps for Brazil’s under-17s.

Joining Joelinton in the Brazilian squad is his Newcastle team-mate Bruno Guimaraes. They are part of interim coach Ramon Menezes’ 28-man squad for friendlies against Guinea and Senegal. Other Premier League players included in the squad are Liverpool’s Alisson, Manchester City’s Ederson, Manchester United’s Casemiro, West Ham United’s Lucas Paqueta, and Tottenham Hotspurs’ Richarlison.
