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.

Ronaldinho, who missed the last two qualifiers against Peru and Uruguay in November 2007, has not played for Barcelona since April 4. The Spanish club has been trying to sell him, but a deal to send him to AC Milan fell through.

Defenders: Alex (Chelsea/ENG), Juan (Roma/ITA), Lucio (Bayern Munich/GER), Luisao (Benfica/POR), Daniel Alves (Sevilla/ESP), Marcelo (Real Madrid/ESP), Gilberto (Hertha Berlin/GER), Kleber (Santos), Maicon (Inter Milan/ITA).
