Earlier today, we launched a very special competition asking you to upload your best goals to our new application, with a very special prize for the best Golaços we see. The five chosen winners will travel to Brazil to live the life of a young player at Clube Atlético Paranaense’s state-of-the-art training facility. While in Brazil, they’ll also get to meet one of the country’s greatest ever players, Roberto Carlos.
One of the greatest Golaços ever has to be Roberto Carlos’ free-kick for Brazil vs France at Le Tournoi in 1997, so he’ll know what to look out for when he’s judging this competition. To celebrate the launch of the Umbro Golaço competition, we asked celebrated journalist Guillem Balague to sit down with Roberto Carlos to discuss his life and career. In the first of five special videos, here Roberto tells us all about that legendary goal, and the effect that it has had on his life as a footballer.
Has that inspired you to capture your own Golaço and enter our fantastic competition? Head to UmbroGolaco.com now or download the application to your phone to upload your best effort, share it with your friends and vote for your favourite videos. The competition is open until February 21st, and you can upload as many videos as you like. Good luck, and get shooting!
