This is pretty much the stuff of nightmares. Sure, Roberto Carlos is 38 years old and cashing in on one last big payday in Russia before retiring. But even if his legendarily wicked free kicks have lost a bit of zing over the years, I still wouldn't want to take one directly to the face.
One member of the Volga wall wasn't so lucky, though. Actually, he was kind of lucky -- he wasn't instantly decapitated, as you would've expected a Roberto Carlos blast to the melon to do to him. While he probably had no idea where he was, at least he was conscious and able to shake Roberto Carlos' hand when the Brazilian checked to see if he was still alive. So congrats to that guy.
