  • Print

RIO DE JANEIRO - Veteran striker Robinho says he still wants to play for Brazil's national team despite being left out of the World Cup squad this year.

After returning to Brazilian club Santos on a one-year loan from AC Milan, Robinho says the "national team will always be my goal."

The 30-year-old forward was a starter in the 2010 World Cup team and a reserve in 2006. Both times Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals. This year Brazil fell 7-1 to Germany in the semifinals.

Brazil's new coach is Dunga, who also led the national team in 2010. Luiz Felipe Scolari coached Brazil this year.

Robinho started his career with Santos before moving to Real Madrid in a blockbuster deal in 2005.
