REPORTS: Kaká Recalled to Brazilian National Team

According to multiple reports on Twitter, Orlando City midfielder Kaká has been recalled to Brazil’s national team for upcoming friendlies on Oct. 11 and 14 against Argentina and Japan, respectively.

Brazil coach Carlos Dunga recently hinted that a recall could be in the works for Kaká, who hasn’t played for his national team since the spring of 2013, now that he has fully embraced a deep midfield role.

“In the games that I have seen involving Sao Paulo, he is playing differently to how he was before. He is organizing the team. Filling in the spaces, and performing very well.

“Before he was in a more advanced role, using his speed off the mark and finishing skills. Now he is participating more over 90 minutes.”

If Kaká’s form is getting him a look from the Seleção Brasileira, it’s great news for City fans and for their Brazilian international.

Here’s how things unfolded this morning on Twitter:

 

Kaká has scored 29 goals in 87 appearances for his country.

UPDATE: According to Orlando Sentinel sports writer Paul Tenorio (an excellent Twitter follow, btw), this news has now been confirmed by Orlando City.
