, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Two-time FIFA World Player of the Year winner Ronaldinho helped Fluminense to a 1-0 win over Gremio on Saturday in his first match for the Rio de Janeiro club.
The 35-year-old played the full 90 minutes at the Maracana stadium, despite having only begun training with his new teammates on Monday.
Playing in a free-roaming forward role, the former Barcelona star was involved in most of the home team's best scoring chances.
He started the move that led to Fluminense's 77th minute goal when his long pass was flicked on by Wellington Paulista, before Marcos Junior rounded the goalkeeper and fired into an empty net.
Gremio were reduced to 10 men just after halftime when Wallace was shown a second yellow card for a bad foul on Junior.
Ronaldinho praised his teammates and admitted he was surprised to play the entire game.
"It was my first match here and I wanted to win," Ronaldinho said. "Now I want to work hard to recuperate my physical fitness."

Djokovic Cheap Nike Air Max 97
, 30, enters the 2018 Australian Open as the 14th seed, the first time he has been ranked outside the top 10 at the year's first Grand Slam in a decade, after missing much of 2017 with an elbow injury.
His hopes for a triumphant return at Melbourne Park were dealt a blow at the Australian Open draw on Thursday night with the Serbian set to face former top-10 player Gael Monfils in the second round before running into fourth seed Aleander Zverev and 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka.
Even if the six-time Australian Open champion should clear all those hurdles he could encounter 2017 champion Roger Federer in the semifinals.
Federer, who turned back the clock to win two Grand Slams in 2017 after a five-year drought, on Thursday night described the season as "unbelievable."
"I don't usually like going to draws Cheap Nike Air Max 90
, I just want to see the sheet. But what a pleasure to be here on Margaret Court Arena. Last year was an amazing final and it's great to be back," he said.
A string of local hopes were also dealt difficult draws; 17-year-old Destanee Aiava will face world number one Simona Halep while fellow teenager Alex De Minaur, who has made the semi-finals at both the Brisbane and Sydney Internationals, will play Tomas Berdych.
Berdych, the 17th seed, has never lost to an Australian at a Grand Slam in seven matches.
"He's a very talented player. Has a very high level. I'm just going to go out there Cheap Nike Air Max 95
, try to weather the storm, and try to play my game," De Minaur said.
Seeded women in the tournament were lucky to avoid the threat of Maria Sharapova who is ranked 47th in the world after serving a doping suspension in 2017.
China's Zhang Shuai was not as lucky, drawing 2017 US Open Champ Sloane Stephens as she attempts to recreate the success of 2016 when she made the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.
Peng Shuai, China's highest ranked tennis player, was drawn against a qualifier.
