‘R9’ in full support of Selecao…
All time leading World Cup goalscorer Ronaldo has shown his support to the Brazilian World Cup squad via his twitter account, tweeting a number of messages to his compatriots.
“Number 10, my brother, you’re a genius. Believe in yourself,” he told Kaka.
“Kiddo, go on, show what you can do. Make them dance,” he said to Robinho, while his final message of support was to the man carrying the burden of being entrusted to fire Brazil to glory, Luis Fabiano.
“Warrior, you’re better than the rest,” he stated to the Sevilla striker. “I know you’re going to honour the number 9, which you’ve taken over, which is now yours.”
Ronaldo, now playing his football back in his native Brazil for Corinthians had an outside chance of making the World Cup squad, but was eventually left behind by coach Dunga.
Brazil begin their World Cup campaign tomorrow evening when they take on North Korea.
