Brazilian football has always drawn attention. The only five-time world champion country, the country knew how to turn the phrase ‘barn of stars’ into a cliché. Names like João Gomes, Andrey Santos and Danilo have joined the Premier League, which now has a large workforce coming from the land of Samba.
The tone of the world has changed. It is the English who have the most coveted championship in Europe, something that has already been seen in Italy and Spain.
There are now 34 Brazilians in the Premier League, with most having success at club level. The youngest ones are yet to debut. Transfers like Casemiro (Manchester United) and Bruno Guimarães (Newcastle) are the most valued, as they made the English realize the strength of the Brazilian midfield.
