Ronaldo says he will probably retire from international football after the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

“It’ll be my fourth World Cup and I have to let younger players take their chance,” said the 28 year-old who won the Cup in 1994 and 2002.

“I’ve four more years on my contract with Real Madrid and then I’ll finish my career,” he added Wednesday.

Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira agreed with his striker.

“I respect his decision. I think he’s right. If he does go he will go when he’s at his peak,” said Parreira.
