Figo's side were trailing 2-0 when Boa Morte reduced the arrears before stepping up to take a spot-kick.

When the whistle was blown, the 35-year-old ran up and dummied a shot, forcing the goalkeeper to move to his right before stroking the ball inside the opposite post.

Figo fielded a team which included Vítor Baía, Míchel Salgado, Pedro Mendes, Émerson, Gaizka Mendieta, Marcel Desailly, Faustino Asprilla and Emmanuel Petit.

They eventually secured a 3-2 victory thanks to a late goal by former Real Madrid winger Santiago Solari.
