Where is Ronaldo?

  • Most of us know the striker Ronaldo, the star player of the decade for the Brazil team-- all time top scoring man for the Brazil team, but as early as April, he said he is not in the best fit to play for the FIFA World Cup 2010. He last played for the national team in 2006.
  • Former Brazil star Ronaldo has this to say for all the hoopla about him joining the national team in 2010 World Cup FIFA -- "Given the few matches I have played this season I don't deserve to be in the Brazilian squad, that's clear. But I am still at the call of the coach - after all, it's my country". He clearly stated that he would like to play and he is just waiting for the coach to include him.
  • Ronaldo is not included in this year 2010 World Cup FIFA.


  • Kaka is a Brazilian football midfielder and is playing for the Brazil team. His full name is Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite. Kaka is a midfielder topnotch winning the Ballon d'Or and 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year award. Let us see if he can steward his team to another World Cup title.
  • Kaka has an injury going to the game but he is very fit and is practicing for the world cup title


  • Fabiano is a Sevilla striker top notch and is joining the Brazil team, he was sidelined with a sprain injury last year

Most importantly, the players feel the same way," -- "As we draw nearer to our first match, I’m sure some of the guys will be a bit anxious, but right now, we are just happy to be here."
  • Coach Dunga came a long way by seeing to it that the Brazil teamis well prepared and with his credentials as a coach let us see -- he definitely stewarded the team in the 2007 Copa America -- the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 and he made the team qualified for the South Africa 2010 World Cup.

We experienced the same conditions during the Confederations Cup last year -- "We are here to compete for the World Cup, we know that our responsibility is to do well in this tournament. We are very motivated to do well and to fulfil our objectives." Let us see is all I can say.
