Here we see Ronaldinho, in action for Atletico Mineiro against Sao Paulo in the Copa Libertadores last night, asking for a swig of opposing ‘keeper Rogerio Ceni’s water following a knock in the gob – though it quickly transpired that it was all just a deliberate ploy to shake the Sao Paulo backline and remain high up the field while his teammate slung a long throw back in his direction.

Ronaldinho then brings the ball under, slips a low cross into the box and Atletico striker Jo (who Man City fans most likely won’t remember at all) hurtles in to apply the finish…

Atletico won 2-1, with Ronaldinho providing both the assists; one of which was far more elaborate than the other!
