Sao Paulo :

Ronaldinho says he wants to play for Brazil at the 2012 Olympics to try to win one of the few titles he still doesn't have in his career.

The 31-year-old playmaker has regained his spot in the national team after returning to Brazilian football at the beginning of the year and wants to be in the squad in London.

Ronaldinho says his "dream is to win the gold medal in the Olympics," a competition he has already played twice without success.

The Olympic tournament is played with under-23 squads but each team can use up to three players older than 23. Ronaldinho, a two-time FIFA player of the year, was one of those picks in the 2008 Beijing Games, when Brazil lost to Argentina in the semifinals and returned home with the bronze medal.
