Kaka's return to the national team setup has been a positive one. If this continues, it could be a really positive thing for Brazil.
Granted, the team's first two opponents at the start of his comeback were Iraq and Japan, but he still had to prove his worth. He did just that by scoring a goal in each of those games and being among the top performers for his side on the attacking end of the pitch.
Kaka continued that success against Colombia with some good touches throughout the game, but wasn't lucky enough to continue his scoring run with the national side, after seeing a wonderful shot hit the crossbar.
He faded a little as time went, but that can be expected, considering his age and lack of match practice compared to many of his teammates and opponents.
The Kaka of AC Milan may not return, but this Kaka provides experience and composure and has fit in well with his younger teammates thus far.
He could very well see himself as part of the Brazil fixture in 2014 if he finds some regular playing time and stays fit.
