Missing puzzle: Ronaldinho

Missing puzzle: Ronaldinho

Ronaldinho Gaucho could have been the answer to Brazil's lack of creativity in the midfield, but he was left out of the current squad at the FIFA World Cup by Felipe Scolari.


The Brazilians haven't quite hit their straps in the tournament, they are yet to hit the third, fourth and fifth gear we had gotten used to over the years.

The brilliance of Neymar could have been complemented by the perfection of Ronaldinho's calming presence and leadership.

Oscar has been given the task to be the playmaker, but in the last match the Chelsea midfielder struggled with physicality and creativity against tougher and more skillfull opponents.

Gaucho is currently playing his football in Brazil for Atletico Meneiro, he has been in fine form since his arrival from Flamengo, many remember him during his Barcelona days winning two World Player of the Year Awards.

Despite his age, Dinho could have brought the missing spark in the Brazilian midfield. He might not have the pace he used to have, but his vision and thought process is unquestionable.

His role would be to create chances for the likes of Neymar and Fred, his strength, trickery and his leadership could have been key in the hosts quest for a sixth World Cup crown.
