Ronaldinho Is Back!

Brazil national team coach Mano Menezes is happy with Ronaldinho's performance during the win against Ghana.
The Flamengo winger played his first match for the international team in ten months and he was able to show glimpses of his class during the match.
Although it wasn't his best performance, Menezes confirmed after the game, we could see more of Ronaldinho playing for the Selecao.
Menezes told reporters: "He (Ronaldinho) played very well and he is a player we need to bring back into the team.
"He got into his rhythm and showed what he is all about in the second half. He played really well and the Ghana keeper (Adam Kwarasey) made a few wonderful saves from him.
"We need to bring him back into the international team."
Brazil won the game through Leandro Damiao's first international goal on the stroke of half-time and Menezes was grateful for the win in what was a test for his side.
Menezes continued: "I am very satisfied as we were playing a very good team. We didn't concede any chances to our opponents and it's very importnat we could get back to winning games after losing our last games.
"We didn't start very well but once we got into our rhythm we played very well, but we could have scored more goals.
Daniel Opare was harshly sent off for Ghana with two bookable offences by referee Mike Dean and Menezes believes it could have been a much closer game, if it wasn't for the sending off. 
"This Ghana team was more or less the team that played in the World Cup. They are a bit ahead of us but we are still rebuilding our team.
"We are bringing through a whole new generation of players. What makes it difficult to judge is that it wasn't 11v 11. If it was 11 v 11, it would have been much closer."
