Ronaldo ready for dream farewell

Brazilian legend Ronaldo will make his final appearance for his country on Tuesday night when the five-time World Cup winners meet Romania in a friendly.

Ronaldo, a three-time FIFA World Player of the Year award winner, is set for his swansong at the Estadio Pacaembu in Sao Paulo and told reporters he is desperate to mark his farewell performance with a goal.

The 34-year-old striker said: "I'm very, very nervous and still shocked. It would be a dream if I can score a goal.

"I'm very happy for closing this part of my life with the national team. I have nothing to prove. I only have to thank the Brazilian people for their unconditional support."

Ronaldo, who has played 104 times and scored 67 goals for Canarinho, has been praised by fellow countryman Robinho, one of his successors in Mano Menezes' side.

"Ronaldo is my idol," said Robinho. "He has always been. He is a brilliant player and I've watched him since I was a child.

"I'm happy to be part of this event. I was shocked when I was close to him the first time and I am shocked today too."

Ronaldo retired from club football back in February after his club Corinthians were eliminated from this year's Copa Libertadores.
