SAO PAULO (AP) – Ronaldinho has been included in Brazil's squad for the friendly against Bosnia this month, while Kaka and Robinho again were left out.
Brazil coach Mano Menezes has summoned 23 players for the match in Switzerland on Feb. 28, the team's first of the year. Ronaldinho is back despite struggling with Brazilian club Flamengo, but Kaka didn't get another chance even though he has been playing often with Real Madrid recently.
It is the first time since last October that Menezes had all players available for the squad. In the friendlies against Gabon and Egypt in November, he could not count on players from Brazilian clubs because the Brazilian league was in its decisive stages.
