    Like I said, I don't think he was going out to genuinely hurt the bloke. I've played enough sport and football to know exactly where you're coming from. Kaka just didn't have that intent. He was fully aware of where he was jabbing his elbow though.

    Not really getting the anger here, because of the situation, actually means Kaka misses the match against Portugal, a match that IC would want them to win. Really stupid actually, not exactly affecting the result of the match either.

    Discraceful, but utterly counter-productive, good

    Keita ran into him, Kaka braced himself.
    Have no idea why Keita thought to go down holding his face.

    Fabiano and Lucio were worse throughout the game though, at least a couple of times each and Robinho had a go at the end and popped up straight away for the throw in.

    Kaka is on a yellow card, now he misses the next game and can go to the knockout stages without carrying it. On the otherhand portugal has chance to play against kaka less brazill, which is bad for ivorycoast.

    Anyone who is thinking kaka run away from the foul looking suspicious, and he deliberately elbowed must be watching another game. The reason he jogged away to his half is because he already participated in skirmish couple of minutes, kinda lost his temper there. So to make sure not to get involved again he did that. Kaka is one of the few worldclass players who doesn't dive or try to cheat. Saying he mean it becuase he did not throw a temper tantrum at referee is nonsense. He kinda accepted referee's decision because he knows its better to miss against portugal rather in QF.

    How many times? I remember watching the game thinking ivory coast stopped playing football and started only tackling. In fact referee is a bit lenient if he booked couple of players for one of those 30 sec free kicks, the match wouldn't have end in that way. Still great from brazil though; the short, slick passing make other teams look real dumb.

    Both teams were pretty awful as far as diving goes, the Brazillians in particular. Shame because I thought that they were above that sort of thing.

    Kaka knew exactly what he was doing to Keita so deserved a 2nd yellow in my mind. The dive was horrendous yes, but that doesn't change Kaka's initial action.

    Just because they started running in 30 sec, doesn't mean they dived. There is a possibility that at the time of impact it hurts more, which they can shrug off quickly. Ivory coast are dreadful during two parts of the game where they simply started to foul the brazilians. In fact the only way brazilians got to the final third from their box is with a slew of fouls committed against them. Although I'm pretty sure brazilians are generally go down quickly, its not the first time.

    It's just horrible to see. Hopefully FIFA grows a pair and bans him after the fact.

    Apparently kaka's response was short as he just said see the replay.
    btw they should really screen it before ivory coast's next match.

    Fabiano is a baller.' Needs more outrage directed at him tbh. Sadly disappointed by the lack of it.
