RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) -- Nelson de Jesus Silva, better known as Dida, goalkeeper for Brazil's national team, has asked not to be part of future Brazil national squad games, Brazil's national soccer manager Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, known as Dunga, told media Sunday.
"He has called us saying that it is not in his plans to play for Brazil any more," Dunga told Brazilian television. "We don't want any player who doesn't want to represent Brazil, who doesn't take any pleasure in being here," he added.
Dida, 32, last played in the 2006's World Cup quarterfinal match where France beat Brazil. His regular team is Italy's AC Milan, and although he was included in the squad in the last three World Cups 2006 was the first time he played.
In 2006 he played five matches and conceded two goals. His first game for the national squad was against South Africa in 1997, and he has won a total of 92 caps. He was also part of the 1996 Olympic Games team that won a bronze medal. Enditem
