SAO PAULO (AP) - Retired striker Ronaldo gets nervous just thinking about his upcoming farewell match with Brazil's national team.
Ronaldo says he knows his emotions will get the best of him when he officially bids farewell to the Brazil squad in Tuesday's friendly against Romania.
He says he is already "shaking" when imagining how it will feel to wear the famed yellow jersey one last time.
The former striker's comments came Monday after he was honored by the Brazilian football federation for his services with the national team.
The 34-year-old Ronaldo retired from football in February after an 18-year career. He led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title in South Korea and Japan and was a member of the squad that won the 1994 tournament in the United States.
