Class is permanent—just ask Orlando City's Kaka.

The Brazilian made his Major League Soccer season debut Sunday night as Orlando thrashed defending champions Portland Timbers at the Citrus Bowl in Florida.

The former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder delivered a cross for Seb Hines to head home to put the hosts in front after 13 minutes.

Shortly after the half-hour mark, the 33-year-old exchanged passes with Brek Shea, who fired an unstoppable shot to double the advantage.

And Kaka put the game out of Portland's reach early in the second half with a goal of his own:

A Kevin Molino spot-kick made it 4-0 before Jack McInerney scored a consolation goal in the 89th minute.

After four games, the undefeated Orlando leads MLS' Eastern Conference, while Portland has yet to kick into gear, sitting ninth in the West.
