Brazilian Ronaldo Wants to Say Bye at 2010 World Cup

Ronaldo, the prolific big boned striker and all-time leading World Cup goal scorer thinks the 2010 World Cup in South Africa is the perfect venue for his retirement.

The current Corinthians striker, who led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, said "A chance to play in the World Cup would prolong my professional career. It would be great to be able to close my career during the Cup, but I don't want to put any pressure on anyone to make any decisions."

The athlete admitted that he is not fully ready to play for the Brazilian national soccer team quite yet. He acknowledges that he still has some weight to shed and quickness to gain.

Still, Ronaldo's been on fire for his current club team. In his 14 games with Corinthians, Ronaldo has scored 10 goals and has helped his team to win the Sao Paulo state championship.

Corinthians now have their eyes on the Brazilian Cup. They travel to play Fluminense in the return leg of the quarterfinals on May 17.

MY POV: I'd love nothing more than to see the greatest striker of my generation make his farewell at the 2010 World Cup in Africa.

But do you really think Brazil coach Dunga will feel the same way and pick him for the squad? Herein lies the conundrum ...
