He was invited to play a game by other inmates at Agrupacion Especializada, scoring five and assisting six in an 11-2 win.
It's safe to say that any captains in the tournament will be looking to recruit Ronaldinho before the tournament begins on Monday.
There will be one catch should he feature in the tournament, and it's that he cannot score according to Hoy per FourFourTwo.
