Ronaldinho has returned to the Brazil squad for their friendly against Ghana after a nine-month absence.

The 31-year-old now plays for Flamengo back in his homeland and has not worn the famous yellow jersey since last November when Brazil were beaten 1-0 by arch rivals Argentina.

The game will take place at Craven Cottage on September 5th but the crowd will not be able to see Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, Cruzeiro goalkeeper Fabio, Porto forward Hulk and Internacional striker Leandro Damiao, who were all left out.

There was no place for Chelsea midfielder Ramires, but there was room for Santos' versatile Brazil Under-20 international Danilo.

Squad: Julio Cesar (Inter Milan), Jefferson (Botafogo), Fabio (Cruzeiro); Lucio (Inter Milan), Thiago Silva, Dede (Vasco), D Luiz (Chelsea), D Alves (Barcelona), Danilo (Santos), Marcelo (Real Madrid); Adriano (Barcelona), Lucas Leiva (Liverpool), L Gustavo (Bayern Munich), Ralf (Corinthians), Elias (Atletico Madrid), Fernandinho (Shakhtar Donetsk), PH Ganso (Santos), Lucas (Sao Paulo); Ronaldinho (Flamengo), Robinho, A Pato (AC Milan), Hulk (Porto), L Damiao (Internacional), Neymar (Santos).
