Kaka recalled to Brazil squad after 2 years out

Share This Story



Kaka is back in the Brazilian national squad for the first time since the 2010 World Cup.

The playmaker was selected Thursday despite playing sparingly with Real Madrid. Coach Mano Menezes picked Kaka in a squad for exhibitions last year, but he didn't play because of an injury.

Menezes chose a squad of 24 players for the exhibitions against Iraq in Sweden on Oct. 11 and Japan in Poland on Oct. 16.

Kaka's last game with the national team was Brazil's elimination by the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in South Africa.

On Wednesday, Kaka scored three goals in Real Madrid's 8-0 win in an exhibition against Colombian side Millionarios in Madrid.
