Orlando City’s first designated player signing, Kaka, helped out his temporary team, Sao Paulo FC, in a big way on Thursday night, scoring a 40th minute goal that put Sao Paulo up 3-2 in aggregates against Criciuma second leg of the Copa Sudamericana tournament.
The goal came just minutes after Sao Paulo tied the aggregate score, 2-2. Paulo Henrique Ganso recorded the assist on the goal, playing a ball to an open Kaka, who slotted it home for the score.
Kaka joined Sao Paulo on-loan this summer after signing a three-year Major League Soccer contract with Orlando City. He is expected to join his new teammates in January, when the club opens up it’s pre-season training camp.
