Kaka aims for World Cup

After scoring the first goal of his return to AC Milan, Kaka has set his sights on securing a place in Brazil's squad for World Cup 2014.

Kaka continued his excellent recent form with a goal against Lazio at San Siro last night and stated his desire to play at the 2014 World Cup.

The Brazilian star has impressed since returning to the Rossoneri and he netted a fantastic goal against Lazio - his first since returning from Real Madrid.

Talking to Mediaset after the game, Kaka revealed that he is hoping to break into Brazil's squad for what would surely be his last World Cup.

"I want to thank Milan for this second chance," the 31-year-old enthused. "I have to keep improving several aspects of my game but I'm happy because there has been a big improvement since the game against Torino.

"I will keep trying hard and hope to get to the World Cup in Brazil and have a great one."

It was another fairly anonymous evening for enigmatic marksman Mario Balotelli, who saw one shot saved but was also booked for dissent. 

"Mario is very important for us," Kaka insisted. "After his booking I told him not to make any more gestures because the referee could send him off. He just has to find the right way to help the team."

Kaka's strike wasn't enough to secure all three points for struggling Milan, who could only draw 1-1, increasing the speculation that coach Massimiliano Allegri could be on his way out.

"The speculation is only natural at big teams," Kaka said. "At Real Madrid too they used to talk about the coach leaving whenever things went badly. 

"The team has to now listen to him and know that he wants the best for Milan. There are several areas we have to improve."
