Kaka Confident

Kaká Confident Ahead Of Match Against Red Bulls

Orlando City take the field this Friday in Harrison, New Jersey in search of their third consecutive win. With Kaká expected to return to his comfortable number 10 role, Orlando City fans can feel a little more at ease after their last two wins without him.
Kaká has been in the gym and on the training field consistently for the past few weeks while working off the knock he picked up with the Brazilian National Team. City fans were glad to hear Kaká state, “I’m in no pain and I’m ready for the game.”

The Brazilian star is expected to be joined by Brek Shea and Darwin Céren. Shea came on at the Orlando Citrus Bowl against Sporting Kansas City and made an immediate impact with his assist on Bryan Róchez’s goal. Shea also played a part in Róchez’s goal against the Fire after coming off the bench and teaming up with Céren to put the Lions up 1-0.

When asked about the availability of Kaká and other players, Adrian Heath remarked, "You never know when they've had a week, two weeks not training, how they're going to be in the morning, but they look very good. They feel good, and hopefully they're all going to be available for selection in the weekend."

Kaká has scored 10 crucial goals this season with 5 assists and will be looking to add to those numbers this Friday night as Orlando City face Eastern Conference leaders the New York Red Bulls.
