The 32-year-old, who currently plays for Atletico Mineiro, has impressed the national coach with his good form for his club side.
The former Barcelona star, who has not represented Brazil in nearly a year, will start against England on Wednesday, and Neymar is delighted by his return.
"I think [Scolari] made exactly the right decision to bring Ronaldinho back," said Neymar.
"He is not just one of the best players of recent years but one of the best players to ever play the game. For three years he was the best player in the world.
"He has won everything with Brazil and also during his time at Barcelona - he brings a lot to the team."
England host Brazil at Wembley in a friendly on Wednesday.
