Ronaldinho included on preliminary list for Brazil's Olympic team

SAO PAULO (AP) -- Two-time FIFA player of the year Ronaldinho has been included on the preliminary list of players who could make Brazil's squad for the London Olympics.

Coach Mano Menezes announced Wednesday that Ronaldinho made his initial list of 51 players.

Other players older than 23 who made the list include Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar, AC Milan defender Thiago Silva, Barcelona right back Daniel Alves and Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Under-23 players Neymar, Paulo Henrique Ganso and Alexandre Pato were also picked by Menezes. Only three players over 23 are allowed in men's Olympic soccer.

The Olympic tournament is the only significant soccer competition Brazil hasn't won.

Ronaldinho played in the 2008 Beijing Games, when Brazil won the bronze after losing in the semifinals to Argentina.
