In which Ronaldinho shows just how he’s come about earning himself a recall to the Brazilian national side, notching his eighth goal in ten games (he later also bagged his ninth) during Flamengo’s 3-2 defeat away against Avai last night.

Oh, did we mention? Yeah, it was directly from a corner kick – one of them thar ‘Olympic goals’ as the South American kids are calling them these days…

Reckon the sneaky little bugger meant it? Yep, so do we.

    why the impulsive recall. long-term plan is wc2014. and dinho will definitely not be playing in that at the ripe old age of 33 and when there a shitload of talented, younger, play makers to pick from. then i’d rather have of our good old sensible bert van marwijk as coach. saw clarence seedorf shine like gold for milan last season but never even considered recalling him for holland. bert my man’s got balls, thumbs up. plus he’s winning.
