Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says that Ronaldinho still has an international future.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has not ruled out another call-up for Ronaldinho despite his disappointing performance against England.

The 32-year-old missed a penalty at Wembley and was substituted at half time, but the Selecao boss said that it was not ideal for the Atletico Mineiro star.

"Ronaldinho just played 90 minutes in Brazil, it's normal that he isn't in the conditions we wanted," Sky Sports News quotes the 64-year-old as saying.

"But if he keeps doing well for his team, he will easily keep getting called up."

The former Barcelona and AC Milan attacker has scored nine goals in 32 games this season.
