​One of the greatest footballers in history, Roberto Carlos has attempted to recreate that same insane free-kick he scored for Brazil against France in 1997.


In the opening game of the Le Tournoi, the Brazilian legend produced one of the most memorable strikes in football history when he curled a free kick past goalkeeper Fabien Barthez in a 1-1 draw.


Speaking in an exclusive interview with ESPN in 2017, 20 years on from the strike, Carlos said: "To be honest, until this day I don't know how I did that."


And now, at the age of 46, the former Real Madrid defender has shown that he has still not lost his touch with the game as he attempted to curl past former Barcelona goalkeeper Vitor Baia in a similar fashion to what he did in 1997.


Here's the video:



Carlos sensationally bends the ball from right to left leaving Baia stunned. However, on seeing the video again, it can be seen that the legendary defender's attempt just crept past Baia's goal. However, that still doesn't disregard the fact that the former full-back has still got it in him to strike in a few net busters at his age.


Here's how fans on social media reacted to Carlos' incredible attempt:
