Watch Brazil icon Roberto Carlos recreate legendary free-kick

Twenty-two years on from the legendary free-kick he scored in the 1997 Tournoi de France, retired Brazil star Roberto Carlos has attempted to recreate his famous left-footed, curling 'Banana Shot' wondergoal.
     The original strike, which has become arguably the most famous free-kick goal in football history, appeared to defy the laws of physics as Roberto Carlos struck the ball with the outside of his left foot, initially appearing to send the ball wide of the goal, before the curling ball corrected its own trajectory and flew past a flummoxed Fabien Barthez in the French goal.
