Robinho thrives as Kaka struggles

Manchester City fans might not believe it, but Robinho is the toast of the Brazilian FIFA World Cup™ squad. With Kaka not firing on all cylinders after a difficult season at Real Madrid, Robinho has looked more like being key to Brazil's hopes of lifting a sixth world title.

The former Real Madrid man certainly appeared to be revelling in the role with his slide rule pass providing Elano's clinching goal in the 2-1 win over North Korea. Baby-faced Robinho is now approching the veteran stage at international level with 71 caps, having made his bow in 2003. He already has a CONMEBOL Copa America title and two FIFA Confederations Cups.

The story is too old to be commented.

Robinho is nothing. He can nearly bear his own ego. Kaka is a different story. He will be better and better during the WC

You should see him play in Santos! Brilliant! He is as good as Ronaldo in the old days!

His ego is the only big with him. Average player in the World Cup.

Stupid. out of topic. Messi is bad, and Maradona was never a good player... :)

looks a bit washed out. Must be age and constant injuries catching with him. He's young, but not fit.
