thumbnail Hello,

Selecao pair pleased with narrow victory...

Brazil stars Kaka and Robinho have insisted that the Selecao's narrow 2-1 win over North Korea in their opening World Cup Group G encounter was a good result.

After a scoreless first half Maicon fired the South Americans in front before Elano added a second midway through the second period. The plucky Chollima pulled one back through Yun Nam Ji late on but Brazil held on for the three points.

"I am happy with my first game and glad that I made it to the World Cup considering all my injuries this season," said Kaka.

"I am happy that I was able to play today and that I was given a chance. The result is good and I feel good.

"They played very well, they kept us out and did everything to try to stop us from scoring, but in the second half we created a lot of space and we were able to score two goals."

Team-mate Robinho insisted that Brazil's superiority was clearly evident as he immediately turned his focus to the next game against Ivory Coast on June 21.

"We were stronger than them and it showed in the result. We won comfortably and now we must think of the next game and prepare for that," he declared.
