Ronaldinho has been ruled out of Brazil's friendly with Portugal next week.
The Barcelona ace is struggling with a calf injury and has withdrawn from the squad.
Ronaldinho's future with Brazil has been the subject of speculation with the skilful forward having only started one of five games under new Brazil boss Dunga.
PSV Eindhoven defender Alex has been forced to pull out of the squad with a thigh problem.
Dunga has decided not to call up replacements for the absent duo.
