Ronaldinho Sees Red For Flamengo

Ronaldinho seems to be back in the time warp of the 2002 World Cup. First, he scored a brilliant free kick against Mexico, as in the World Cup quarterfinal against England. And this Saturday, in Flamengo's Brazil Serie A match against Ceara, Ronaldinho earned a red card that sequentially corresponded to the red card he received for fouling Danny Mills soon after his extraordinary free kick against David Seaman. The Brazilian playmaker received a red card in the 50th minute after kicking Heleno, who appeared to elbow Dinho in the course of a tackle. Flamengo held on to a 1-0 lead thanks to a goal from Deivid. Flamengo now moves into fourth place, three points behind league leaders Corinthians.
