2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™

12 June - 13 July

2014 FIFA World Cup™

87 days to go

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.
