In 1997, Brazilian football player Roberto Carlos set up for a 35 meter free kick with no direct line to the goal.

Carlos’s shot sent the ball flying wide of the players, but just before going out of bounds it hooked to the left and soared into the net.

How did he do it? Erez Garty describes the physics behind one of the most magnificent goals in the history of football.

If you thought that was interesting wait until you hear the mind-blowing factors that took place in order for Carlos to score “The Impossible/Improbable Goal” against Tenerife on the 21st of February 1998.
