MOST COMMENTED

Brazil, which has taken to playing its friendly games abroad, will play its first home game in more than two years when it faces Ecuador in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday. Its last home game was 3-0 win over Venezuela Oct. 12, 2005 in qualifying for the 2006 World Cup. The game against Ecuador also marks its first at Maracana Stadium since a 5-0 win over Bolivia in 2000.

"I greatly want to return, to play in front of our own supporters," said Ronaldinho. "[Playing at the Maracana) is a completely different type of emotion because of everything the Maracana represents."

On Saturday, Brazil opens its qualifying campaign in Colombia.
