Rio de Janeiro: Kaka is set to make his debut for Orlando City in a January friendly against Brazilian giants Flamengo, media reports said.

The match has been scheduled for January 28 at the Arena Amazonia in Manaus, Xinhua quoted Brazilian sports news portal Lancenet as saying.

The fixtures will form part of Orlando City's pre-season programme as they prepare for their debut Major League Soccer season, beginning in March.

Kaka joined the new franchise in July after ending an 11-year spell in Europe.

The 32-year-old made 307 appearances and scored 104 goals during two stints with AC Milan, where he won the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year award.

He also played 85 matches and scored 23 goals during four injury-blighted years at Real Madrid.
