The World Cup favourites Brazil have named their final squad for next month's tournament in South Africa, and it doesn't include either Ronaldinho or Adriano.

30 year old Ronaldinho, a key part of their 2002 World Cup-winning team, last played for Brazil 12 months ago, and coach Dunga had recently expressed concern over Adriano's weight problems and missed club training runs.

Among the surprise selections is the Tottenham Hotspur goalie Heurelho Gomes.
