  • 04 Jun
    SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Ronaldinho hasnt given up hope of playing for Brazil at the 2014 World Cup despite not being included in the Confederations Cup squad. Ronaldinho has been thriving in Brazil and looked set to make the team, but coach Luiz Felipe Scolari decided to leave the former two-time FIFA player of the year off the list of 23 players selected for the warm-up tournament that begins June 15. The 33-year-old Ronaldinho acknowledged he was surprised by being left out, but remained confident that he can be recalled before the 2014 World Cup that Brazil will host. He says not making the team "motivates me even more to try to play better and be recalled in the future." Wholesale Basketball Jerseys .

And now theyre guys whom were relying on to win championships and to win games, and thats fantastic.
