The future of Brazilian midfielder Kaka in the national team squad has been speculated a lot due to the age and injury concerns of the midfielder.
However, it seems that manager Luiz Felipe Scolari is more concerned about his form rather than other attributes. He was recently present at the San Siro in order to witness Kaka playing in the Milan derby. AC Milan have been very poor this season and it was not surprising that they did not get a positive result in a match. They lost 1-0 and they have slipped further lower in the table.
This is probably the final opportunity to see Kaka at a World Cup since the midfielder is approaching the twilight of his career. At 31 years of age and suffering from numerous knee injuries, it is looking highly unlikely that the Brazilian will be seen on the 2018 Russian World Cup stage. It is speculated that one of the main reasons behind Kaka's move to Milan, which involved the midfielder taking a huge pay cut in order to make it possible, was the 31-year-old's motivation to play in the World Cup, which will take place in Brazil for the first time in more than five decades.
However, it seems that Kaka faces a monumental task to force his way into the national team squad.
"I came to take a look at the Brazilians, but they played normal. Kaka didn't have a great game, he wasn't bad but he didn't shine either. I don't know if I will call up Kaka for the World Cup. I came to look at him and Inter's Jonathan and Juan Jesus. There are still six months left until the World Cup and there is time to evaluate the squad," said Scolari.
The national team managed to win the 2013 Confederations Cup.
