Football physics: The “impossible” free kick – Erez Garty

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.
