Kaka has earned a recall to the Brazil national team for the forthcoming friendlies against Iraq and Japan.
The Real Madrid star has not featured for his country since the 2010 World Cup after enduring a difficult spell in the Spanish capital.
But the 30-year-old has shown signs of returning to form and scored a hat-trick for Real in a friendly against Colombian side Millonarios on Wednesday.
Selecao coach Mano Menezes has decided to take a look at the player in the two friendlies that are to be held in Europe next month.
There are also four Premier League players in his squad with Chelsea trio David Luiz, Oscar and Ramires included alongside Tottenham midfielder Sandro.
The game against Iraq will be held in Malmo, Sweden, on October 11th before Brazil travel to Wroclaw, Poland, to take on Japan on October 16th.
