Watch: Kaka scores in first game on pre-MLS loan with Sao Paulo


Kaka's pre-MLS loan is off to a good start, at least on a personal level.

Watch: Orlando City fans welcome Kaka at the airport

In his first game back with his first club, Sao Paulo FC, Kaka scored in a 2-1 loss to Goias in Brazilian Serie A action. Kaka, who is on loan with Sao Paulo prior to joining Orlando City SC for its 2015 MLS expansion season, cut into a 2-0 deficit in the 76th minute, benefiting from some good fortune.

A cross intended for him in the center of the Goias box was hit behind him, but it took a fortuitous touch off a defender right into his path. The 2002 World Cup winner and 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year took full advantage, turning and finishing with his left foot from close range to get Sao Paulo on the board.
