He has made an impressive debut with Corinthians. Like a rising phoenix, Ronaldo can never be counted out.

"Dunga said that if Ronaldo regains his form, he would be selected. The forward has scored twice in two matches for Corinthians following a one-year layoff caused by a knee injury.

“I’m staying calm on the issue and I’m cheering for Ronaldo,” Dunga said. “He doesn’t need to prove to anyone that he knows how to score goals.”
