Roberto Carlos Pulls Off An Outrageous Backheel Pass Against England In Soccer Aid Match

Roberto Carlos rolled back the years by producing an outrageous backheel pass during the Soccer Aid match.

The 46-year-old Brazilian icon waited for the ball to drop down before perfectly pulling off the overhead backheel pass to Arsenal legend Robert Pires.

It's hard to put into words how magnificent the pass really was, so check it out for yourself below.

And the fans loved every minute of it, with Carlos sending social media into overdrive with praise for his unbelievable skills.

There's no doubting that the Real Madrid legend hasn't lost his touch.

Rest of the World won the contest on penalties at Stamford Bridge on Sunday night.

England took the lead through Jeremy Lynch and would double their lead thanks to his superb half-volley finish into the bottom corner of the net.

But the Rest of the World were not ready to throw the match away and found life thanks to an error from Jamie Carragher, which gifted Usain Bolt the opportunity to pull one back.

Kem Cetinay would equalise for the Rest of the World and send the match into a penalty shootout after the scores remained level at full-time.
