Full name is: Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite.

Kaka had an excellent first season with Sao Paulo to earn a place in Luiz Felipe Scolari's first two friendly selections of 2002, scoring in a 6-1 win against Iceland.

He has mercurial skills and ability to score vital goals provided plenty of problems for defences throughout the Brazilian league.

Kaka scored the only goal in Brazil's opening match of the 2006 World Cup finals against Croatia to create a new competition record of eight consecutive victories.

He joined Real Madrid in June 2009 in a six-year deal.

The fee was reported to be about £56million - a new world record surpassing the £45.6million Real paid for Zinedine Zidane in 2001.
