Kaka Offered World Cup Lifeline

Kaka fans rejoice: the AC Milan midfielder may still play his way back into Brazil’s World Cup squad.

The former World Player of the Year is back where he belongs at the San Siro, after his disappointing stint at Real Madrid appeared to have cost him his international career.

And despite the fact that injury has hampered his season already, two eye-catching displays in the Champions League against Barcelona have reminded the world that Kaka at his best is a sight to behold.

And it appears Brazil boss ‘Big Phil’ Scolari was watching, after he hinted that Kaka could be offered a Selecao lifeline if he continues to impress for Milan.

"I was happy with Kaka's decision to sign with the team that gave him the chance to be at his best once more," Scolari told reporters.

"I'm watching all Milan fixtures. He can certainly have a good opportunity in the future."

And Kaka is likely to take Scolari at his word.

He need only look at his club-mate Robinho, who has been recalled to the Brazil set-up for their upcoming friendlies against Honduras and Chile, proving that Scolari is paying attention and will reward good form.

"Robinho has participated in two World Cups. His quality, technique and his joy can be useful," Scolari said.

"It was time to call him up to see if he can be important in the World Cup."
