Brazil latest: Kaká confident after Tanzania demoliton

By Rhys Hayward

Kaká, 28, made 30 appearances for Real Madrid last season

Heurelho Gomes deputised for injured goalkeeper Julio Cesar in Briazil’s resounding 5-1 victory over Tanzania in their final World Cup warm-up game.

The Tottenham goalkeeper was the only change to coach Dunga’s first choice XI for the match in Dar Es Salaam.

Robinho and substitute Ramires both bagged two goals and key man Kaká added a third as the five times world champions romped home.

The Real Madrid forward has struggled with injuries in his first season in Spain but reiterated his confidence in his own form after the match.

“I felt very good today,” he told Globo. “All that remains for me is to go that extra bit further.

“I’ll certainly grow in this competition, that is what excites me the most.”

Brazil open their campaign against North Korea on 15 June and are among the favourites to lift the trophy in South Africa.
