Throwback: Roberto Carlos Spectacular Free-kick A Mystery To Be Talked About.

For you who watched the legendary Brazilian defender score his unbelievable free-kick 24 years ago and for you who watched the recorded tape of the Brazilian scoring the free-kick against France, you have nothing to say but "amazing" and then wonder how the defender got to find the back of the net form that difficult and point of the pitch.

Playing against the French international team in the inaugural match of Tournoi de France, that consisted of Zinadine Zidane and their in-form goalkeeper Fabien Barthez, the legendary defender took the opportunity to strike the ball from a 40-yard spot, and as if possessed by a magical spell, the 40-yard free-kick bent through the well-built wall of the French international team, to breeze through perplexed Fabien Barthez in a manner to avoid all obstacles on the way. Fabien Barthez could do nothing but gaze at the steep-moving ball bang into his net.

With the fans gazing in amazement at what was done by the Brazilian and former Real Madrid, no one could tell what occurred in the dead-ball situation but one would notice that at first, the ball swayed away intent upon going into the corner flag of the Frenchmen, however, it curved back, taking a trajectory order to defy all natural laws of motion and movement to end up in the Frenchmen's back of the net.

Indeed a mystery to be talked about by any eyes that had seen the spectacular 40-yard free-kick goal scored by Roberto Carlos against France in a 1-1 tie on the 3rd of June 1997, the goal will always be the talking point in the career of the defender who scored most goals in his career despite occupying a back-line position in the pitch. The spectacular 40-yard free-kick goal is not a goal to be ignored, as we rarely see goals like this in the game.
