Ronaldinho to miss games in USA
May 16th, 2008 7AM



[BRAZIL TOUR] Ronaldinho is out but Kaka, Alexandre Pato and Robinho will be the headliners for Brazil's two-game tour of the United States.

Adriano, who is currently on loan to Sao Paulo from Inter Milan, was the only new addition to the 25-man squad for the games Canada in Seattle on May 31 and Venezuela on June 6 in Foxboro, Mass., and World Cup 2010 qualifiers against Paraguay and Argentina in mid-June.
