Kaka has been recalled to the Brazil squad for their forthcoming fixtures against Iraq and Japan on October 11 and 16 respectively.

The former World Player of the Year has failed to make any competitive appearances for Real Madrid this season, but did turn out for Los Blancos midweek when they hosted Milonarios, and he made the most of the opportunity as he bagged a hat-trick.

His performance against the Colombian outfit seems to have been enough to convince Brazil boss Mano Menezes into including him in his squad for the country’s upcoming international friendlies.

The midfielder has yet to feature under the former Corinthians coach. He was picked by the five-time world champions in November 2011 for matches against Gabon and Egypt, but was forced to pull out with injury.

Kaka, who has made over 80 appearances for his national side, will travel alongside Madrid team-mate Marcelo, Valencia’s Diego Alves and Barcelona duo Dani Alves and Adriano for the two games.
