Ronaldinho & Neymar heading to Wembley

Published Add your comment

World football superstars Neymar and Ronaldinho have been named in the Brazil squad to take on England on February 6 at Wembley.

 

The two-time world footballer of the year has not played for A Sele├žao for nearly a year and his impressive form for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil has seen him catch the eye of his international boss once more.

 

However, the biggest draw is most likely to be the Santos superstar Neymar, whom has been setting South America alight and being compared with the likes of Lionel Messi at Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid.

 

Ronaldinho is not the only veteran to get a recall – goalkeeper Julio Cesar of Premier League strugglers QPR is back after exactly the same time out as the former Barcelona and AC Milan attacker.

 

Cesar is one of four Premier League players called up for Luis Felipe Scolari’s first squad since he took over the Brazil side for the second time at the end of last year, Chelsea trio Ramires, David Luiz and Oscar have been named.

 

Scolari was the man in charge when Brazil last lifted the World Cup at Japan and South Korea 2002.
