Top five insane Roberto Carlos goals
Brazil legend Roberto Carlos has announced he’s hanging up his boots. OTP wishes him all the best for the future and celebrates five of his craziest goals.
1. That free-kick vs France
The ultimate bendy free-kick and one of the most talked about goals ever to be scored in a meaningless friendly tournament. Le Tournoi was treated to this massive run-up, a shot aimed at the corner flag and an amazing swerve to beat Fabian Barthez.
2. The impossible angle vs Tenerife
This still boggles our mind after all these years. He’s on the byline, he’s 25 yards out and he hits it with his left foot from the left wing. How does this end up in the net?
3. Direct from a corner vs Portuguesa
He still had it even towards the end of his career. This brilliant bit of opportunism in his Corinthians days was very well executed.
4. Long-range free-kick vs Barcelona
The long-shot before this free-kick helps to put this in context: it’s a long way out. And what a match to score it in.
5. Another free-kick bazooka vs Celta Vigo
You could opt for any number of free-kicks really, but we’ve gone for this beaut.
