A large crowd had turned up at the famous Maracana Stadium in Rio on Wednesday night, hoping to celebrate Romario's 1,000th goal in Vasco da Gama’s Copa Brasil tie against Gama. But Romário de Souza Faria, the former 41-year-old PSV striker, failed to score and to the disappointment of the crowd, Vasco were even knocked out of the tournament, after suffering a 2-1 defeat, thanks to a last minute strike. The Cup tie had been switched to the Maracanã stadium especially for Romário. The former Brazil striker will be rested next Sunday, when Vasco da Gama make a trip to Cabofriense, so it will take at least one week before he will get an opportunity to score his 1,000th goal in his career.
