KAKA (Brazil): The 2007 FIFA Player of the Year. The 28-year-old is beloved by his home country, but also by Spain, where he plays professionally for Real Madrid. He is a World Cup veteran, with appearances in 2002 and 2006. He is joined by Brazilian teammate Maicon, also age 28, arguably one of the world’s top 10 players and best defenders. Kaka is welcomed by supporters at the Rainbow Towers Hotel in Harare, Zimbabwe, on June 1 as Brazil arrived to face Zimbabwe in a warm up match ahead of the World Cup.
