Brazilian maestro Kaka' is Goal.com's official MVP for the Confederations Cup. The playmaker conducted traffic in all of Brazil's games, using superior close control and a visionary eye to pick apart every defense the Samba Boys came up against.
His official stats – 2 goals, 2 assists -- don't tell the full story. Everything positive in the Brazilian game funneled through the former A.C. Milan man. For instance, against the United States in the final, Luis Fabiano's second goal was created by Kaka' despite the “unassisted” tag. Kaka' burst past Jonathan Spector on the left flank and played across a ball the U.S. defense couldn't deal with. Robinho smashed it off the post before Fabiano struck for his fifth of the tournament.
Real Madrid's summer signing showed why he was worth his exorbitant fee throughout the competition and collected FIFA's golden ball award as well as a Confederations Cup winner medal.
