Ronaldinho is known all over the world for his creativity and flair in soccer. But this Brazilian superstar was once a frightened child, whose father died tragically before his eyes when he was just eight. His father had wanted Ronaldinho to be a great soccer player, and the boy kept working at it. He became a brilliant youth player who helped Brazil win the Under-17 World Cup. A few years later, he scored a memorable goal against England in Brazil’s 2002 World Cup quarterfinals. He went to Spain’s Barcelona, leading them to several championships. With a new school planned for underprivileged kids in Brazil, product endorsements, and dedication to the game, Ronaldinho continues to dazzle the world.
