Kaka was once the best player in the world. Kaka was once bought by Real Madrid for £56million. Kaka is now playing in the MLS in front of a crowd that would make some Sunday league team's blush.

The former Ballon d'Or winner has fallen a long way from his peak, but the Brazilian doesn't deserve this.

Still only 32, the Brazilian has opted to spend the rest of his career playing in the MLS for new franchise Orlando City.

Having been in his native Brazil for the last six months with hometown team Sao Paulo - where he hardly pulled up trees with two goals in 14 matches - Kaka made his debut for Orlando City in a friendly game against FC Dallas.

But while he was once helping AC Milan to win the Champions League, Kaka had to play his debut in a friendly for the reserves in front of what looks like less than 50 people.

The fallen maestro managed to score a penalty in the 4-0 win.
