Brazilian playmaker Kaka has revealed his desire to represent his country at their home World Cup next summer.
The 31-year-old scored his first goal since returning to AC Milan in the transfer window and he will look to prove he is worthy of a place in Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad.
"I will keep trying hard and hope to get to the World Cup in Brazil and have a great one," the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner said.
"I want to thank Milan for this second chance.
"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."
Kaka made his name at AC Milan and became one of the greatest midfielders in the world, winning the Champions League in the 2006/07 campaign.
He earned an emphatic transfer to Real Madrid, becoming one of the new era Galacticos, alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo. But his time in Spain was injury-ridden and completely unsuccessful.
Kaka has not played for his country for over a year. He will be hoping his return to the San Siro can reignite his old form and win him a place in the Brazilian squad, where there is great pressure to perform on home soil.
