Fat Ronaldo Not Ready for Brazil Just Yet

Skinny Ronaldo is that guy winning all the awards and trophies with Manchester United. The Portuguese one.

But we all know who the REAL Ronaldo is ... he used to be bald, he used to score goals like they were going out of style and he's the World Cup's all-time leading scorer.

His name? Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima.

Or simply: Ronaldo.

We kid and call him Fat Ronaldo to differentiate from the ... skinny Ronaldo.

But although he's got some girth, Ronaldo's finally scoring goals again for Corinthians in Brazil. About time. We've missed him.

Now that the heavy hitter is back on the pitch after missing almost a year with injuries, is he ready to don Brazil's yellow jersey in preparation for the 2010 World Cup?

Not just yet, says Brazil coach Dunga.

When asked whether he is ready to pick Ronaldo, Dunga said: "Not yet. I will deal with that calmly when I have to. But like all Brazilians I'm supporting Ronaldo. I'm happy he is back and scoring. He is doing what he does best."

Dunga does, however, understand why there have been calls to bring Ronaldo back into the Brazil squad and has left the door open for the striker.

"They are not doing that (calling for his return) because of the two goals he has scored, but because of his career," the coach continued. "Football is emotion, it's passion.

"As soon as we believe he is playing well, and his fitness is good, then we'll name him. Ronaldo hasn't got anything to prove to anyone."

MY POV: Actually, he needs to prove he can stay away from the discos and buffets and score on a more consistent basis.

Honestly, how cool would it be to see the real Ronaldo scoring goals for Brazil in South Africa? I'm getting goosebumps already ...

We need Ronaldo, the real Ronaldo back on the pitch in the 2010 World Cup. Frankly, Ronaldo's scoring was never about speed. It is about position and vision. He needs enough fitness to be in position and not offside. His vision and heart are still surely in form. If they can geet the ball to him in stride, he can score.
