Roberto Carlos drives his new Sunday League team-mates crazy by video calling former Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Ramos from the pub after Brazil’s 48-year-old World Cup winner surrendered for Shrewsbury-based Bull in the Barne.
Roberto Carlos has sent teammates and fans to a pub in Shrewsbury, his new team is named Wild after Facetiming by former Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Ramos.
The 48-year-old former left-back made his league debut on Friday, replacing Bull in the first half at Barne United.
And after scoring a penalty in his only appearance for the Shropshire side, the Brazil 2002 World Cup winner went for a pint with his new teammates at a nearby pub.

He then wowed his star-studded teammates even further by getting his hands on Ramos in a video call, with the current Paris Saint-Germain centre-back joining Carlos and the pub-goers in going wild.
Carlos, the 48-year-old retired player, was apparently nursing a knee injury so was left on the bench – inside a rickety wooden dugout – for the start of the game against Harlescott Rangers FC.
When he finally donned his brown No. 3 jersey, the super-sub played in central midfield to the cheers of ‘Bobby’ from the hundred or so fans watching.
Carlos only played nine minutes, touching the ball four times. But he entered a few seconds in the second half to score a penalty, before returning quickly to the touchline.

The Real Madrid legend played just nine minutes as he reportedly nursed an injury
His appearance and shot on goal weren’t enough to save his side from a 4-3 friendly loss, however.
Speaking in the village hall after the match, Carlos said he didn’t mind playing on the rambling pitch and admitted he was ‘scared’ when called upon to take the penalty in the latter minutes. “England fans are amazing,” he said.
The game was organized by eBay to raise money for Football Beyond Borders, an educational charity working with pupils from disadvantaged communities in the UK.
But the Brazilian legend scored a penalty, but couldn’t prevent them from losing 4-3
