Roberto Carlos on his famous goal against France

Roberto Carlos spoke to FIFA on Instagram and dicussed the hardest striker he ever faced along with several other topics during lockdown.

Most difficult forward: "Eto'o, Joaquín... But the most difficult was Figo. He was really annoying. He was an excellent player."

Most special goal: "The goal in the Clásico was the most special but the one that marks my career was the one against France. Sometimes, they ask me about this goal, the ball didn't weigh much, the player helped me and I struck it at goal."

Clásico: "To play in a Clásico and to score a goal is very special."

Neymar: "Neymar is good, he's happy, scoring goals, being humble at PSG is what I want to see and in the future at the World Cup, he can be the best player in the world."

Neymar's development: "Neymar is a genius and there are people who look after his life. Since he was 13 until 27, I was very controlled. The structure at Real Madrid helps you to play just football. You have to be very concentrated to play football."

Playing on the wing for Inter: "I played on the wing. The problem is that in the first seven games, I scored seven goals. They went to put me up front in Italy in 1995 and I suffered a lot because of it. I spoke with Moratti and I said to him that I couldn't keep playing up front because in three months, I had the Copa America and that day I had a meeting Lorenzo Sanz and in ten minutes, I left and I came to Madrid. In that time, things were done very quickly."
