Ronaldinho misses Brazil cut

Ronaldinho has failed to make it into Brazil's 23-man squad for the 2010 World Cup.

The 30-year-old, who was the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005, has been in good form for AC Milan this season but has missed out on Dunga's squad for the finals in 2010, denying him the chance to add a second World Cup crown to the one he won in 2002.

Squad: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Doni (Roma), Heurelho Gomes (Tottenham); Maicon (Inter Milan), Dani Alves (Barcelona), Lucio (Inter Milan), Juan (Roma), Luisao (Roma), Thiago Silva (AC Milan), Gilberto (Cruzeiro), Michel Bastos (Lyon); Gilberto Silva (Panathinaikos), Felipe Melo (Juventus), Josue (Wolfsburg), Elano (Galatasaray), Ramires (Benfica), Kleberson (Flamengo), Kaka (Real Madrid), Julio Baptista (Roma); Robinho (Santos/Manchester City), Nilmar (Villarreal), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Grafite (Wolfsburg).

Always going to happen. He's had a poor season for A.C Milan, and is a show pony who doesn't work for the team. Dunga has installed a great work ethic with Brazil, and Ronaldinho doesn't fit in with that plan.

this is a sad day for football. Ronaldinho is one of the greatest players ever, he is an ambassador for what football represents, fun and brilliant! The World Cup is an arena for the best of the best and Ronaldinho at his best is incredible!
