Not golden

Brazil have never won Olympic gold in soccer. Perhaps they might change that this year.

Here's the squad Dunga has named to try to take home the prize. It's not a bad roster, though I think Ronaldinho is less than fit.

Goalkeepers: Diego (Almeria, ESP), Renan (Internacional)

Defenders: Marcelo (Real Madrid, ESP), Ilsinho (Shakhtar Donetsk, UKR), Rafinha (Schalke 04, GER), Thiago Silva (Fluminense), Alex Silva (Sao Paulo), Breno (Bayern Munich, GER).

Midfielders: Lucas (Liverpool, ENG), Anderson (Manchester United, ENG), Hernanes (Sao Paulo), Ronaldinho (Barcelona, ESP), Diego (Werder Bremen, GER), Thiago Neves (Fluminense).

Strikers: Robinho (Real Madrid, ESP), Alexandre Pato (AC Milan, ITA), Rafael Sobis (Real Betis, ESP), Jo (Manchester City, ENG).
