Kaka wants to take advantage of his red card against Ivory Coast by getting in shape for the decisive stages of the World Cup.

The Brazil playmaker remains displeased after being sent off late in the 3-1 win over Ivory Coast on Sunday, but says the forced time off means he will be able to focus on improving his physical conditioning for the rest of the tournament.

Kaka will miss the final Group G match against Portugal on Friday. Brazil has already secured its place in the next round. Kaka played well against Ivory Coast but struggled in the opening match against North Korea following a season plagued by injuries with Real Madrid.
