Roberto Carlos scored his first and only FIFA World Cup™ goal while winning his 87th cap against China PR on 8 June 2002.

It was a trademark strike, too, with the Brazil left-back opening the scoring in a 4-0 group stage win with a ferociously struck free-kick.

The victory, which also included goals from Rivaldo, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, would prove to be the most resounding of A Seleção’s triumphant 2002 campaign.
