    Wow, that was an incredible goal. How he got it curve like that is beyond me. He is truly an amazing athlete. I usually do not watch soccer so thanks for posting this video. Maybe the best soccer goal ever? If anybody can think of a better goal than this, please share.

    Obviously Roberto Carlos occasionally bunked off from soccer practice and sneaked into physics lessons.

    Amazing how the ball shifts in the air and how Carlos has mastered the art of controlling that movement. theer are goals on that clip that some of the worlds greatest footballers could only dream of scoring.
