MLS Special: Kaka Guides MLS All-Star To Win 2-1 Over Spurs

Dunga, current headcoach of the Brazilian national team, can consider recalling him in his squad, given the lean patch Brazil is going through in the recent years.

On a different perspective, the “new kids” of MLS showcased that they can still play a little bit of quality soccer.

Kaka and David Villa of Spain, both 33, combined to script a 2-1 victory for the MLS All-star team against Premiership outfit Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.

Kaka’s Heroics

Kaka, who was the skipper of the MLS All-star side, was selected the MVP of the tie.

”Not bad for my first All Star,” said Kaka, a midfielder from Orlando City. ”I didn’t expect that for tonight.

”Everybody is happy, because tomorrow in the soccer world everybody will talk about the MLS All-Star team beating a very good European team.”

MLS raised their record to 9-3-1 against foreign teams in its All-star’s games.

It was the former star midfielder of Brazil, Kaka, who drew first blood from a spot-kick and created Spanish striker David Villa’s goal minutes later. The goals lifted All-star to a 2-0 lead in the first half only.

”His desire to be here was tremendous,” All-star coach Pablo Mastroeni said, hailing Kaka in a post-match media conference.

“For a guy who’s done everything you can pretty much do in a football career and still have this desire to come and participate in Colorado, in altitude, mid-week, and be excited and hungry about it? That speaks more about the human than the player. … He rubbed off, even for a moment, on a lot of us.”

Harry Kane pulled one back for the Spurs in the second half.
