Kaka may not be part of Brazil's World Cup squad, but that hasn't stopped him getting in the party spirit as a fan.

The AC Milan midfielder was part of the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Brazil teams at the World Cup, but a dip from his best days and the emergence of others meant there was no place for him.

But there was no sulking—he was instead at the opening game against Croatia in his national shirt, and he even filmed Neymar's penalty (as you can see above) on his phone and popped it on Instagram.

Before the game he could also be spotted hugging Neymar, Thiago Silva and company to wish them luck before the game.

Not something every multi-millionaire footballer would have done in the same circumstances.
