Joelinton handed first ever call-up to the Brazil squad – Official announcement

He’s done it – Joelinton has just received his first ever call-up to the Brazil national team!

Ahead of upcoming games against Guinea and Senegal (17th and 20th June), the big man has been named in Ramon Menezes’ squad in the last few moments.
