Referee shows Kaka yellow card before taking a selfie with him during a game

Referee shows Kaka yellow card before clicking a selfie with him during Israel Vs Brazil’s as the Brazilian appears for a charity game.

Kaka was an exceptional player and modest at the same time, this is the reason why he earned so many fans across the world, and even after his retirement two years back.

The former Brazilian International took retirement in 2017 while last playing for an MLS club Orlando City. But, he is still seen making appearances in the charity games.

Thus, Kaka was once again playing a charity game against Israel for Brazil and during the game, one of the most bizarre things happened, as the referee in the game stopped the play to give a yellow card to Kaka.

It was really surprising to see this, as Kaka posed no harm and just collected the ball in the middle of the park, which made the card bit strange. But this was not the end to this.

The referee further took out her phone and posed with Kaka to take a selfie, which looked quite bizarre at that point of time, but it is understandable from referee’s perspective that it was kind of perfect situation to have a selfie with the football legend.

The former AC Milan and Real Madrid star was playing in a friendly that featured a star-studded Brazil line-up. Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Rivaldo, Cafu and Bebeto all appeared for Brazil.

The game between Brazil and Israel ended with a final score of 4-2 and Bebeto, Ronaldinho, Kaka and Amoroso grabbed the goals for the South American nation.

But surely the highlight of the game was the photo moment between Kaka and the fab referee, who might have by now framed it.
