Kaka Turns Up To 7-A-Side Game In Hackney, Scores A Worldie And Absolutely Runs The Show

Kaka Turns Up To 7-A-Side Game In Hackney, Scores A Worldie And Absolutely Runs The Show

A football team in East London got the most incredible surprise this morning when the one and only Kaka turned up for their seven-a-side game.

The 2007 Ballon d'Or winner has played at some of the best stadiums in the history of football, from the San Siro to Old Trafford, and won both the Champions League and World Cup in his illustrious career.

But he went back to humble beginnings today when he made the trip to Haggerston School and joined Reach Out FC, based in Hoxton, near Hackney, on a one-game loan deal.

Decked out in full kit and the new Adidas Predator 20's, the AC Milan and Real Madrid star didn't need much time to show what he's all about and in next to no time he was banging one into the top bins in trademark Kaka fashion.

The best thing about the goal though, is one of the players shouting the 37-year old to cut the ball back when there was absolutely no way that was ever happening.

He then proceeded to celebrate wildly as though he'd scored the biggest goal of his career, climbing on the fence as his teammates ran over to him.

When Kaka Destroyed Lionel Messi For Pace And Scored Glorious Solo Goal

published at19 days ago

Kaka's shock appearance comes as part of the adidas Rent-A-Pred campaign, a new Predator 20 hotline - set up to help London footballers in need of a 'ringer' for their team.

Over the course of the week, adidas have been helping players to combat the age-old problem of teammates not turning up for games by enlisting the help of some of London's best Predator players as 'ringers' to those in need.

Former England Women's star Eni Aluko and the F2 Freestylers were among those involved in the campaign, but it went up another gear today.

Kaka, one of the best to ever play the game delivered an 'unfair advantage' to Reach Out FC - lighting up the astroturf pitch with two goals and an assist in a 4-2 victory.

After rolling back the years, Kaka said: "We had a slow start in the game but luckily I managed to give the guys the unfair advantage they had reached out to the Rent-A-Pred hotline for.

"I've always loved playing in England so it was great to come back again and play with a group of people that love the game as much as I do."
