Snow was something alien to Ze Roberto as he grew up in Brazil. Missing out on the phenomenon was something he certainly made up for once he began a career in Germany that would see him spend time at Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich and Hamburg between 1998 and 2011.

In the above snap, taken during a friendly between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Bamberg in January 2009, the 84-times-capped former Brazil midfielder dives through the snow like the big kid he admits to being!

Germany is no stranger to snow. On Sunday alone, Frankfurt Airport – Europe’s third busiest – had to cancel 150 flights because of snowfall.
