Ronaldinho to Take Brazil's Penalties
News Archive

Ronaldinho is ready to convert.
05/30/2002. Luiz Felipe Scolari has tipped Ronaldinho Gaucho as Brazil's penalty-kick taker for the World Cup.

"We are not a disorganized team where the first one to catch the ball takes the kick," said Scolari.

The announcement comes on the heels of a dreadful series of penalty kicks during training. But some additional practice helped Scolari decide upon his spot-kick specialist.

i hate this! why would felipao need a competition during training to decide who takes the penalties? he already has the best penalty taker in the world cup on his squad: RONALDO.

in 1998, under zagallo, there was no question: ronaldo. when he was hacked by chile in the penalty area, he took the penalty. when it was crunch time in the semifinal against holland, he took the first penalty.

who cares about training ground penalties? ronaldo makes penalties in the world cup and in serie a and still should be taking them for brazil. that's real crap by felipao.
