Robinho said that he is happy to have played for Brazil in the charity match against Colombia.

He said that it was a pleasure for him to be part of the Brazilian national team again and that he will never forget the feeling associated with it.
The Brazil national coach said that the results of the game were not important for him as he was more concerned about the charity aspect of the game. However, he admitted that he used the game to try some new things on the pitch and also evaluate some players that might form part of the team in the future.
