Sao Paulo: Ronaldinho and Kaka have been left out of Brazil's team for the Confederations Cup in June.
Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari also overlooked Alexandre Pato and Chelsea's Ramires for the World Cup warm-up tournament that Brazil will host. The team does include Santos' Neymar, Chelsea's Oscar, Real Madrid's Marcelo and Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas and Thiago Silva.
Scolari had said he would likely choose between Ronaldinho and Kaka for the Confederations Cup, and Ronaldinho apparently was set to secure his place after playing well recently and receiving widespread praise from fans, local media and Scolari himself. And while Kaka was struggling to get a chance to play with Real Madrid, Ronaldinho was making the most of his matches with Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.
