RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Brazil coach Dunga has called up Orlando City midfielder Kaka to replace Bayern Munich's Douglas Costa, who is out of the Copa America Centenario with an injured left thigh.

The loss of Costa leaves Brazil without two of its best young players. Barcelona star Neymar is skipping the tournament next month in the United States, opting for Brazil's team in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August.

Kaka, 34, was a member of Brazil's squad at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
