Adrian North returns to the theme of single career defining moments today as he remembers the infamous Rivaldo incident from the 2002 World Cup...

"But as is so often the case with the legends of the game, they have one moment of infamy that stands in memory above the rest. Of course, this moment doesn't overshadow his career in the slightest, but for a certain demographic of football fans the name Rivaldo is associated with one moment near the end of Brazil's first group game with Turkey on June 3, 2002."
