Romário is determined to score a stunning record and score 1000 goals in his career as a professional football player. The legendary former PSV striker is on the right track. Rómario de Souza Faria celebrated his fortieth birtday the other day, but he still knows how to find the net.The striker scored another hat trick during the cup tie against Botafogo da Paraiba. Vasco da Gama coasted to a 7-0 win and Romaria has now taken his tally to 963. The statistics are not very accurate, though. PSV, however, received a document the other day in which all the goals Romário has scored ever since he made his first appearance for Vasco da Gama, in February 1985, have been carefully recorded. A Brazilians sports journalist has been working for months to present a complete survey of al the goals he has scored for his clubs and country. He has taken into account all the official league games, cup games, pres-season warm up friendlies, international games and so on and so forth. Romário, PSV and the journalist have been frequently in touch with each other and the conclusion may be drawn that Romário has netted 165 goals during his spell at PSV. The four goals he scored against the amateur side Geldrop in August 1992 have also been included. The Brazilian star has made 109 league appearances for PSV in which he scored 98 goals. To be exact: he scored fourteen goals in Dutch cup games; he netted fifteen gaosl in European campaigns and he found the net 38 times in friendlies. So all in all he has scored 165 games.
