The date 20 May 2007 will go down in football history after Romário de Souza Faria realised one of the greatest goalscoring achievements.
Romário scored his 1,000th career goal in the 48th minute in Vasco da Gama‘s 3-1 win over Sport Recife in the Brazilian Championship last Sunday night. The small Brazilian realised his great goalscoring achievement from a penalty, exactly as he had hoped for, as all eyes would be on him. Romário was immediately mobbed by team mates, before innumerable members of the media, television crews and radio reporters rushed on to the pitch to get as close to him as possible. .It took sixteen minutes before the game could be restarted. “I dedicate this to my family, my children. I'm so emotional. This is an extraordinary moment in my life”, said the man who made Brazil world champions in 1994 and who spent five seasons (1988-1993) with PSV in Eindhoven. Below you will find a photo report of the 1, 000th goal scored by the PSV icon and the resulting celebrations in Rio de Janeiro from photo press agency Pics United’s photo data base.
