Former Brazil star Roberto Carlos, 46, set fire to social media with a video reminding Samba fans of the historic goal he scored against France in 1997 with a magnificent "spiral" shot from a direct free kick.
Carlos posted the new video on his official Instagram account, aiming a steady ball with great skill against a goalkeeper guarded by former Barcelona goalkeeper Vitor Bahia, who had a "spiral" goal while looking at it, as did his French counterpart Barthez in 1997.
The new video recorded a huge interaction on all communication sites and achieved about one and a half million views, and was at the forefront of the commentators on the stars of the Brazilian national team, headed by Marcelo, who was the first to comment on it.
