Dinho Excluded From Brazil Callup
Brazilian national team coach Dunga made headlines when he left Ronaldinho out of his 23-man roster for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers against Venezuela in San Cristobal and against Colombia in Rio in a little less than three weeks.
"(Ronaldinho) lacks training time with his new team. We hope that he will come back to being Ronahldinho."
His teammate Kaká will be in the lineup after a year absence. Kaká did not take part in the Copa América and has been out of the summer qualifiers as he was recovering from his injury.
Another player coming back to the national team after a two-year absence in Inter's Mancini. The former Roma player was being called up for the first time by Dunga as he was not considered by the Brazilian national coach.
