A more-hectic-than-expected bit of holiday travel has put a dent in the side of my usually scrupulous blogging schedule, which is perfectly fine with you, thanks for asking. Normal service will resume at the start of next week. In the meantime, why not enjoy one of the ugliest free kicks ever to become surpassingly beautiful? This is Roberto Carlos, lulling Fabien Barthez into an utterly unwarranted sense of security in Brazil’s match against France in Le Tournoi, 1997, and this is your historical goal of the week.
