World Cup hopeful Robinho scores again for AC Milan
They may have recently sacked their manager Massimo Allegri in a season that has never really seen them get going, but AC Milan won the first game of a new era in today's Coppa Italia Quarter Final against Spezia at the San Siro.
The Rossoneri, who will be led by newly-retired Botafogo verteran Clarence Seedorf, had a rejuvenated Robinho to thank in part for the victory.
The Brazilian got the hosts of to a flying start for the second time in as many games with a goal after 28 minutes.
With places at this year's World Cup hotly contended, Robinho's recent form is the perfect reminder to coach Luiz Felipe Scolari that the ex-Manchester City man is extremely keen to play in the tournament on home soil.
Having not played for the Selecao since 2011, Robinho was selected for two friendlies last year, scoring in the second against Chile.
And the 29 year-old will be hoping to break the 100 cap barrier by the time the World Cup final finishes in July.
