Kaka makes first session

CURITIBA, May 26- Brazil playmaker Kaka trained for the first time with the Brazilian squad on Tuesday as the five-time world champions prepared for the World Cup finals, which run from June 11 to July 11 in South Africa.The 28-year-old – the 2007 world and European footballer of the year – had been suffering from a left groin injury which forced him to miss out on Tuesday morning’s training session.

The appearance by Kaka – whose maiden season with Real Madrid ended in disappointment with no trophies in the cabinet – allays fears that he might be a doubt for the opening Group G match on June 15 against North Korea.

On Wednesday the Brazil squad – who finished top of the South American qualifying group – will travel to Brasilia where they will meet the country’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva before flying to Johannesburg.

They are due to play two friendlies on June 2 and June 7 against Tanzania and Zimbabwe respectively.

Aside from North Korea the Brazilians will also face 2006 semi-finalists Portugal and African giants Ivory Coast in the group labelled ‘The Group of Death’.

    Miraa is the chief export of Meru County? Really? Where is the data. Meru County is the chief producer of the crop. Actually, Meru north. But I doubt whether miraa is even the most important crop in Meru north alone

    Neither for nor against, but the author of this article could do better journalism by including relevant citations and references to back up their claims. They mention a survey by DARS and Synnovate but where does one access that data. How can one verify the methodology used in collecting the data? How can one be sure the author is not cooking up numbers?
