Ronaldinho back in Brazil squad

New Brazil coach Mano Menezes has selected Ronaldinho for his squad that will face Argentina in a friendly next month.
The match, staged in Qatar, will be a high-profile return for Ronaldinho, who was cast aside by previous Brazil boss Dunga, thereby missing the World Cup. However, his performances this season for Milan have been rewarded by Menezes, and he now will seemingly win his 88th cap.
Alongside Ronaldinho, his Milan team-mates Alexandre Pato, Thiago Silva and Robinho have been picked. Inter’s 18-year-old Philippe Coutinho, who has one previous cap, has been picked, but there are several odd absentees.
The Nerazzurri’s established duo Julio Cesar and Lucio have been overlooked, and so has Juventus’ Felipe Melo. Also, Lazio’s Hernanes, who has been a standout performer in Serie A this season, has been left out and won’t add to his two caps. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
