The game was played as part of the 20-year anniversary of Norway’s famous 2-1 victory over Brazil in the group stage of the 1998 World Cup.

This time Ronaldo and Co managed to enact revenge by winning the game 3-0, but it was the half-time antics that have stood the test of time.

As reported by AS, Ronaldo and Carlos can be seen smoking in the changing rooms in what has become an iconic photo of the pair.

Reacting to the incredible image, one social media user said: “Brazilians are the best. No crazy lifestyle can take away their talents.”

And another added: “Who knew legends can add to their legendary resume. F*****g love this.”

While a third likened them to teenage rebels, saying: “Like high school kids get to smoke in toilets.”

Meanwhile, Norway fielded a team including some of the players from their famous victory in ’98 such as Tore Andre Flo, Frode Grodas and Kjetil Rekdal.

In the historic World Cup match 23 years ago, Norway needed a victory to reach the last 16 but were 1-0 down with 12 minutes to go following a Bebeto header.

But Flo equalised with seven minutes remaining and then Rekdal thumped home the winning penalty in the 89th minute to hand the Norwegians the priceless win they needed to reach the knockout stages.

Norway went on to lose to Italy 1-0 in the second round, while Brazil made it all the way to the final before being beaten 3-0 by hosts France.
