When the Brazil squad was announced on Thursday, for upcoming friendlies against South Korea and Zambia, someone at the Brazilian Football Confederation forgot Paulinho transferred from Corinthians to Tottenham this summer.
With two goals in his last two games, Paulinho is making a big impression for Andre Villas-Boas’ Spurs side but perhaps not as much for those running his national team.
The mistake shown on Brazil TV when the squad was announced was quickly rectified but is shown on the picture above.
Below is Paulinho and Spurs team mate Sandro (who didn’t make Big Phil Scolari’s squad) explaining their goal celebration at Aston Villa earlier this week.
