Roberto Carlos: Brazil v France Freekick


Our infographic football posters map out iconic sporting moments. Hang the moment Roberto Carlos scored that famous free kick for Brazil against France on the wall - the perfect gift for any Brazil football fan. 

Goal story: Goals in friendlies don't count right? This free kick is different. Roberto Carlos' outrageous run up alone is worth noting, but what he did to the ball when he finally met it with his left foot cannot really be explained. The ball seemed to be heading for a collision with a fan sitting in line with the six yard box, but then the ball swerved dramatically, clipped the post and left Barthez in goal and the rest of the world confused at what just happened.
