JOHANNESBURG – Kaka and Luis Fabiano have resurrected a partnership forged at Brazilian club Sao Paulo at the World Cup, with Kaka’s genius feeding the clinical finishing skills of Luis Fabiano.The pair have been key for the five-time champions at the tournament, teaming up perfectly just as they did when they played for Sao Paulo before becoming stars in Europe.Luis Fabiano has scored three goals in four matches in South Africa, two of them after passes from Kaka. The two have been creating some of the most dangerous scoring chances for Brazil at the World Cup.“We have a perfect connection,” Luis Fabiano said. “We understand each other. I just have to get in position and I know he will get the ball to me.”Kaka set up Luis Fabiano with a perfect through ball in Brazil’s 3-1 win over Ivory Coast in the group stage.On Monday in the 3-0 win against Chile in the second round, Kaka played a one-touch pass to Luis Fabiano inside the area and he rounded the goalkeeper before finding the open net for the team’s second goal.Kaka and Luis Fabiano played for Sao Paulo from 2001-03.
