Club careerEdit

LondrinaEdit

Born in Nkongsamba, Joel moved to Brazil in September 2009, joining Iraty's youth setup.[1] In March 2011 he moved to neighbouring Londrina (which also had the same owner, Sérgio Malucelli), and was promoted to the first-team in 2012, after impressing in the youth squads.[2]

Joel made his first-team debut on 28 March 2012, coming on as a late substitute in a 0–1 away loss against Coritiba, for the Campeonato Paranaense championship.[3] He scored his first goal four days later, netting his side's only in a 1–1 home draw against Toledo Colônia Work.[4]

In the 2014 season, Joel played an important role in Londrina's Paranaense winning campaign, and also scored regularly for the side in Série D. On 31 July 2014 he scored a brace in a 2–1 home success against Santos, for the campaign's Copa do Brasil.[5]

Coritiba (loan)Edit

On 4 September 2014 Joel was loaned to Coritiba for the remainder of the season,[6] being subsequently negotiated with a German unnamed team.[7] He made his Série A debut three days later, again from the bench in a 0–0 away draw against Bahia.[8]

Joel scored his first goal in the Brazilian top flight on 10 September, netting the last of a 3–0 home success against Chapecoense.[9] Seven days later he scored a brace in a 3–1 home win against São Paulo, but fell into a hole into the locker room tunnel after going out to celebrate the last goal.[10]

CruzeiroEdit

On 16 December 2014 Joel moved to fellow league team Cruzeiro, for a R$2.5 million fee.[11] He made his debut for the club on 1 February of the following year, scoring the winner in an away success over Democrata-GV.

Joel was bought outright by Raposa in May 2015.[12] However, he struggled with injuries during the campaign, and appeared in only 11 league matches, scoring one goal.[13]

Loan spellsEdit

On 11 January 2016 Joel was loaned to fellow league team Santos, for one year.[14] He made his debut for the club on 30 January, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 1–1 Campeonato Paulista home draw against São Bernardo.[15]

On 19 January 2017, Joel signed a one-year loan contract with Botafogo.[16]

On 20 June 2017, Joel signed a loan contract until the end of the year with Avaí.[17]

On 8 January 2018, Joel signed a loan contract until the end of the season with Marítimo.[18]

ReturnEdit

In June 2019 he suffered a heart problem.[19]

In October 2019, Joel rejoined Cruzeiro and started to be train with the team squad.[20][21][22]

International careerEdit

He was ruled out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations due to a heart defect.[23]
