FOOTBALL: Samba star falls on his Rs.

RONALDINHO looks like a little boy from Brazil lost against Cameroon's Bill Tchato.

The man who could be king of Manchester United in succession to David Beckham clearly missed playing beside pals Ronaldo and Rivaldo in Thursday's 1-0 Confederations Cup defeat in Paris.

His pairing with 21-year-old Parma striker Adriano didn't work, forcing Brazil back to the drawing board for tonight's Group B game with the United States.

Ronaldinho often looked sullen and disinterested.

But perhaps he'll perk up if Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson invites him to Cameroon for a wee Tchato.
