Romário has moved closer to his 1000th career goal with a double scored in his 400th appearance for Vasco da Gama. The former PSV player has taken his all-career tally to 992 goals, following a double scored in the 6-0 win over Fast-AM in the Brazilian cup. Romário is now just eight goals shy of hitting the mythical 1000 mark.
41-year-old Romário de Souza Faria wore the Vasco da Gama shirt for the 400th time. He converted a penalty on the close of half time and made it 4-0 in the second half with a neat glancing header, also setting up the sixth goal. The striker was handed his first start for Vasco, after he had had spells with Miami FC and Adelaide United. “Vasco have reached the next round and that’s the main thing”, said Romario after the game. “We played well and won. Bagging one goal was fine, but scoring double is just great.” Romário was wearing a special shirt, showing the number of goals he is shy of hitting the 1, 000 goal mark.
