Ronaldinho released from Paraguay prison after five months

Ronaldinho and his brother, Roberto de Assis, have been released from prison in Paraguay after a judge formally accepted a plea deal the defence team agreed upon earlier this month.

The former Barcelona forward and his brother were arrested in March for entering the country with false passports and, a month later, were placed under house arrest at a luxury hotel in the country’s capital, Asuncion, after paying bail of $800,000 each.

“The precautionary measure of arrest is lifted. There are no more restrictions placed by Paraguayan justice,” Judge Gustavo Amarilla told the court.

Ronaldinho, who will leave Paraguay on Tuesday, told local authorities in a hearing that the passports were a gift from a Brazilian businessman, Wilmondes Sousa Lira, who was also jailed.

Ronaldinho and his brother faced up to five years in jail if convicted.

The terms of the agreement include a guilty plea from the two brothers for entering Paraguay with fake passports and fines of $90,000 and $110,000, respectively, for Ronaldinho and Roberto.

Roberto agreed to a criminal record in Paraguay, but Ronaldinho’s record will be clean there.

The plea deal also stipulates that Ronaldinho can leave Brazil at any time, though he must tell Paraguayan officials how long he will be away. Roberto, however, will not be permitted to leave Brazil for two years.

Roberto must present himself to a federal judge in Brazil every four months for a period of two years.

Brazil vs Venezuela 3-0 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

A year after the tournament was originally due to take place, the hosts Brazil get the tournament underway as they look to defend their trophy. They won their ninth title in 2019, and are among the favourites to retain it this time around.

Brazil are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Venezuela in all competitions (W5 D3), but two of those draws have been in the Copa America, with both finishing 0-0.

They’ve won each of their last seven games in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in six of those. Venezuela reached the quarter-finals two years ago before being knocked out by Argentina, but they’ve struggled recently, winning just one of their last six matches (D1 L4).

Argentina vs Chile 1-1 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

Lionel Scaloni leads Argentina into a major tournament for the first time since replacing Jorge Sampaoli after the 2018 World Cup. As ever, the former assistant can call upon the irrepressible Lionel Messi, who will hope this is the year he finally lands his first senior international honour.

It is the fourth consecutive Copa America in which these two nations lock horns. Chile famously prevailed on penalties in the final of the 2015 and 2016 editions, but Argentina won when they faced off in the third-place play-off two years ago.

Messi receives support from Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Gonzalez, while Nicolas Otamendi anchors the defence and Emiliano Martinez wins just his third cap in goal.
