Ronaldinho back for Brazil
The 31-year-old has not featured for his country since a 1-0 defeat to Argentina last November - his only appearance in Mano Menezes' reign as Seleção coach. "Ronaldinho is a world champion with the Brazil team and after his return to the country he has readjusted and he is playing very well," said Menezes, of the player who has scored five goals in his last 12 league outings.
Other notable inclusions in the 24-man group for the 5 September encounter were Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, Cruzeiro goalkeeper Fabio, Porto forward Hulk and Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.
There was no place for Chelsea midfielder Ramires, but there was room for Santos' versatile Brazil Under-20 international Danilo.
