Kaka Stars in Brazil Return

Real Madrid playmaker Kaka starred as Brazil thumped Iraq 6-0 in a friendly in Malmo, Sweden. The 2007 World and European Player of the Year scored one and made one in his first appearance for the South Americans since the 2010 World Cup.

Chelsea midfielder Oscar grabbed a brace to open the scoring for Brazil, with Kaka providing the assist for his second goal. Kaka then eased past two defenders before finishing high at the near post to make it 3-0. Zenit St. Petersburg striker Hulk registered a fourth with a solo effort after 60 minutes before Neymar and Lucas Moura completed the rout against clearly overmatched opponents.

"I'm very happy for this game, for the goal and for living again the spirit of being in the national team," Kaka said after the match. "It's nice to get back to training and to meet the new players. I believe that this new generation is very good,” he added. The former AC Milan star is hoping his contribution last night is just the start as he bids to retain a place in Mano Menezes’ squad for the 2014 World Cup.
