Brazil coach Mano Menezes has kept Ronaldinho place in his squad for their next three fixtures.

Ronaldinho returned to the national team in August after a nine-month absence and has been retained in the group for the three games against Argentina, Costa Rica and Mexico along with highly-rated Santos teenager Neymar.

However, strike duo Leandro Damiao and Alexandre Pato miss out through injuries.

Internacional striker Damiao and AC Milan frontman Pato will play no part after picking up knocks in club action earlier this week.

The Superclasico tie with Argentina is in the balance after a goalless first leg in Cordoba on 14th September. Brazil then play Costa Rica on 7th October and Mexico four days later.

Brazil squad to face Argentina: Jefferson (Botafogo), Rafael (Santos); Danilo (Santos), Mario Fernandes (Gremio), Bruno Cortes (Botafogo), Kleber (Internacional), Dede (Vasco da Gama), Rever (Atletico Mineiro), Rhodolfo (Sao Paulo), Emerson (Coritiba); Ralf (Corinthians), Paulinho (Corinthians), Casemiro (Sao Paulo), Romulo (Vasco da Gama), Lucas (Sao Paulo), Oscar (Internacional), Diego Souza (Vasco da Gama), Elkeson (Botafogo); Neymar (Santos), Borges (Santos), Fred (Fluminense), Ronaldinho (Flamengo).

Brazil squad to face Costa Rica and Mexico: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Jefferson (Botafogo), Neto (Fiorentina); Daniel Alves (Barcelona), Fabio (Manchester United) Marcelo (Real Madrid), Adriano (Barcelona), Rever (Atletico Mineiro), Thiago Silva, David Luiz (Chelsea), Dede (Vasco da Gama); Lucas Leiva (Liverpool), Fernandinho (Shakhtar Donetsk), Sandro (Tottenham), Luiz Gustavo (Bayern Munich), Lucas (Sao Paulo), Elias (Sporting), Oscar (Internacional), Hernanes (Lazio); Neymar (Santos), Kleber (Porto), Hulk (Porto), Jonas (Valencia), Fred (Fluminense), Ronaldinho (Flamengo).
