Between 2003 and 2007 Ronaldinho was absolutely unstoppable.

The toothy Brazilian was undoubtedly the world's best player and premier entertainer, dazzling with an array of mind-boggling tricks that are very rarely seen on the football field.

But he was not just a show pony, in his pomp at Barcelona he helped Frank Rijkaard's team to two La Liga titles and the Champions League, while winning all kinds of individual awards, including being named the World Player of the Year and receiving the Ballon d'Or.

He finished his Barcelona career with 94 goals and 69 assists from 207 matches, a phenomenal record for someone who mostly played from the left wing.

Now 34 and on the brink of retirement, Ronaldinho has named his  Champions League dream team and there are a few surprise selections.
