The Sevilla centre back is one of the most highly regarded defenders in Europe and has been linked with some big moves in the recent past, although he does have some issues with decision making.
On Saturday Carlos proved that theory, as he managed to lob goalkeeper Yassine Bounou from outside the area, to equalise for Real Sociedad.
Youssef En-Nesyri put Sevilla ahead in the game after four minutes but it took less than a minute for the hosts to peg themselves back, Graham Hunter's laughter really makes the goal even better.

Diego Carlos is one of those "oh you don't watch real football you just play FIFA" litmus tests. He has ALL the physical tools to be an incredible player but my goodness his decision making is regularly AWFUL- Aaron West (@oeste) January 9, 2021
Carlos' goal was just part of the madness in the game though, with En-Nesyri giving Julen Lopetegui's again just two minutes after the own goal, the third goal inside the opening 10 minutes.
It didn't take long for Sociedad to get level again, Swedish striker Alexander Isak made it 2-2 in the 14th minute but the scoring in the first half finally ended there.
However after the break Moroccan forward En-Nesyri completed his hat-trick just a minute into the second half to give his side the lead for the third time.

Unfortunately for him the game will likely be best remembered for the utterly incredible own goal by his teammate.
