Tottenham's Gomes in as Ronaldinho a glaring omission from Brazil squad

Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has put his slow start to the season behind him be being selected in Brazil's final World Cup squad.

The 29-year old is expected to be Dunga's third-choice gloveman for next month's tournament in South Africa and was the sole Premier League player picked in the squad.

One glaring omission was AC Milan star playmaker Ronaldinho who has constantly been overlooked for national team selection since April last year.
