Ronaldinho
Club:Paris St Germain
Position:Forward

An average of a goal every other game falls short of the tallies of Ronaldo and Romario, but Ronaldinho is only just finding his feet in international football.

And in no part has he been overshadowed by his more-experienced strike partners in the much-heralded "Triple R" attack.

Ronaldinho, currently with French side Paris St Germain, made a big impact in the early stages of a promising international career.

His chances to shine on that stage have been limited by Scolari's predecessors but, when given the chance, he has excelled.

He was the top scorer in the 1999 Confederations Cup with six goals and earned comparisons to Garrincha with a sensational goal against Venezuela in the Copa America in the same year.

Ronaldinhio has been instrumental in Brazil's successful campaign and looks a permanent fixture for years to come in international football.
