This article echoes the thoughts of millions of Brasilians around the world.
Ronaldo is not finished. He is getting ready to become the greatest player of all time:
- In 97 matches with Ronaldo on the field, Brazil has lost only eight times.
- He is the nation's greatest scorer in World Cups with 12 goals, tied with Pele.
- Three goals in Germany would make Ronaldo the tournament's leading scorer. He has two goals fewer than Gerd Muller of Germany and one fewer than Just Fontaine of France.
- Ronaldo also could equal Pele's feat as a three-time World Cup winner. Despite being only 17, he was a member of Brazil's team that, led by Romario, won the 1994 World Cup in the United States.
And don't forget the video I showed you last time.
