Kaka handed Brazil recall

Kaka handed Brazil recall
The former Real Madrid and AC Milan midfielder will be given the chance to impress on the Selecao's tour of Asia
Kaka could make his first Brazil appearance in over 18 months after being called up by Dunga for the upcoming tour of Asia.
The Orlando City star, who is currently on loan at Sao Paulo, will replace Cruzeiro's Ricardo Goulart in the party for the Superclassico das Americas meeting with Argentina in Beijing on October 11 and the clash with Japan in Singapore three days later.
Should Kaka play in either game it will be first cap for his country since March 25, 2013 when he took part in a 1-1 friendly draw against Russia. The 32-year-old was overlooked for the World Cup by former Selecao boss Luiz Felipe Scolari after a disappointing second spell at AC Milan.
However, his selection has not been well-received by Sao Paulo, with the player now set to miss at least one game in the domestic league.
“We’re happy for him, but it’s a shame that this is all a mess, because the CBF will not stop the league [during the FIFA window]. It is bad for us to lose a key player in such an important moment,” Ataide Gil Guerreiro, a Sao Paulo FC executive, told ESPN Brazil.
