The Brazilian maestro made some interesting comments after his side’s impressive victory.
All of the goals came within a seven minute period towards the end of the first half, giving the Azzurri no chance whatsoever to get themselves back into the contest.
At the completion of the match, Brazilian playmaker Kaka spoke in a press conference where he gave his thoughts on a spectacular night for the Selecao.
“The 3-0 result is a massive shock for me, but it shows that we had a great game,” Kaka declared.
“We are very happy about this result and about our qualification. Now we need to think about the next round, and not about what would be a beautiful final against Spain.
“I’m sorry for Italy, because no one would have expected them to suffer two defeats at the Confederations Cup, but they are still an extremely strong team and everyone knows that they are the world champions.
“I am very grateful to Italy for everything they have given me, and I owe everything I have achieved to them.”
The ex-Milan man concluded by making an intriguing comment regarding the future of his former team mate Andrea Pirlo, who has also been tipped to make a move from the San Siro at some stage this summer.
“If Pirlo is leaving, I will have to advise Real Madrid to buy him,” Kaka concluded by saying, and with a big smile on his face.
The Brazilians will now face the hosts South Africa, where the victor will face either Spain or the United States in the final.
