Correction to AFP Article: "No Kaka For Brazil Friendly Against Bosnia."

AFP is reporting that Kaka played in the Brazil friendlies against Gabon and Egypt as follows:

Kaka did play in the final two games of 2011 for the auriverde -- wins over Gabon and Egypt -- but while coach Mano Menezes insists he respects the player's abilities, he said: "I'm not going to give an explanation for every player not selected."

This is simply untrue. Kaka did not play in the friendlies for Gabon and Egypt. Kaka was selected for the Egypt and Gabon friendlies, but was withdrawn by Jose Mourinho due to injury.
