Kaka upbeat with his return to national team


WROCLAW, Poland (AP) -Kaka says he has played well enough in his return to the Brazilian national team to guarantee his presence in the squad in the future.

The Real Madrid playmaker took advantage of his new chance by playing well and scoring a goal in each of Brazil's friendlies played in the last week. Brazil beat Iraq 6-0 in Sweden last Thursday and got past Japan 4-0 on Tuesday in Poland.

Kaka hadn't played for Brazil since the team's elimination in the quarterfinals of 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

He says he feels he "contributed to the team in these two friendlies" and that hopefully his performances will allow him to have "more opportunities" with the team in the future.
