AC Milan ace Pato excited to line up with Neymar for Brazil

AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato is delighted with his return to the Brazil squad. Pato is preparing to face the USA this week and admits he's been impressed by Santos whizkid Neymar.

"I'm seeing him for the first time now, I had never spoken before with him. On TV I saw his goals, he seems a natural second striker, but if we line up in the team I'm sure the coach will find a way for us to work together," said Pato.

A thought for Real Madrid crock Kaka and Milan teammate Ronaldinho, who are both going through a difficult period: "I am delighted that the operation of Ricky went well: within 3-4 months we will see him again as a champion on the field.

"As for Ronaldinho, he had a slight physical problem, but is training hard. I want him to remain at Milan to score and make a lot of assists for me ..."

Asked about his World Cup snub by Dunga, Pato added: "This question is better not to answer."
