Brazil legend Ronaldo plans comeback with Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Fort Lauderdale Strikers will soon be able to call upon Ronaldo after the Brazil legend announced plans to play for them.

Ronaldo, the World Cup-winning former Brazil international, will come out of retirement to play for Fort Lauderdale Strikers. 

The 38-year-old hung up his boots in 2011, but has been tempted to return in the second-tier North American Soccer League with Fort Lauderdale, where he is part-owner.

"It's going to happen," Ronaldo confirmed to Lance!, a Brazilian newspaper. 

"I have already said so. But it's going to be a bit later, in the playoffs."

Ronaldo helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup and was named FIFA World Player of the Year three times.
