Kaka scores as Brazil thrashes Iraq

2-time World Cup winner Ronaldo Nazario de Lima believes Santos striker Neymar should 'move to Europe as soon as possible' to become 'best in the world'.

Kaka scored in his return to international soccer after an absence of more than two years, leading Brazil to a 6-0 win over Iraq in an exhibition game Thursday.

The midfielder last played an international when Brazil lost to the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup, and he capped a fine performance by scoring the third goal after Chelsea's Oscar had bagged a brace.

"I'm very happy for this game, for the goal and for living again the spirit of being in the national team," said the former Milan star, who hopes Thursday is just the start as he bids to retain an international berth. "Mano used this game as a test and, in my case, I felt it like a training session and I tried to do everything the best as possible to continue in the team in the future."

More than 14,000 tickets were sold for a game mostly attended by Iraqis living in Sweden. It was the first meeting between five-time world champion Brazil and Iraq, the 2007 Asian Nations Cup winner.

Hulk added the fourth on the hour mark while Neymar and Lucas completed the rout against their overmatched opponents, who are coached by former Brazil playmaker Zico.

The South Americans dominated from the start and Oscar put them ahead in the 21st minute after slotting home from Neymar's assist.

The former Internacional playmaker then doubled his and Brazil's tally following some great interplay from Neymar and Kaka.

Brazil continued to dominate and only Iraq goalkeeper Sabri Noor stopped them from running riot, excellently saving from David Luiz's header, a one-on-one from Kaka and Hulk's long-range effort.

Even when Noor was finally beaten, the crossbar thwarted Adriano's effort.

However, Mano Menezes' men were not to be denied and Kaka showed he still has plenty to offer with a fine solo effort two minutes after the interval.

The 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year and Ballon d'Or winner avoided the challenges of two defenders before finishing past a helpless Noor.

Shortly afterwards, Hulk further extended Brazil's advantage with an excellent individual goal.

Santos striker Neymar got on the scoresheet 15 minutes from time and substitute Lucas completed the scoring.

Despite several players in top form, it was Kaka who had all this teammates talking at the full-time whistle.

"He gave some high-class assists and also scored one goal. With continuity he can be a crucial player for the team," said Oscar.

Information from Press Association and The Associated Press was used in this report.
