MALMO, Sweden — Kaka scored on his return to the Brazil national team after an absence of more than two years, leading the South Americans to a 6-0 win over Iraq in an international friendly Thursday in Sweden.

The Real Madrid midfielder, who last played for Brazil at the 2010 World Cup, added the third goal in the 47th minute at Swebank Stadium.

Chelsea playmaker Oscar scored twice and there were also goals from Hulk, Neymar and Lucas.

Oscar scored in the 21st minute after a lovely through ball from Neymar and then made it 2-0 five minutes later.

Goals in 59th from Hulk, 75th from Neymar and 79th from Lucas completed the emphatic victory.

Brazil, which isn't playing qualifiers because it will host the 2014World Cup, plays Japan in Poland on Tuesday.
