Romário de Souza Faria will be rested tomorrow, but Sunday will be the day, when the former PSV striker, who needs only one more goal to reach the 1,000 goal mark in his professional career, could reach the historic milestone, obviously at the Maracanã Stadium, the place where he feels most at home.
Vasco President Eurico Miranda is adamant Romario will score his career 1,000th goal in a game that will draw more media attention than tomorrow’s state championship game at São Januario, which cannot bear a comparison with Maracanã, Brazil’s holy football ground. Romario himself has pointed out before that he is not particularly concerned about where he will score his 1,000th goal, but appreciated his President’s advice not to play tomorrow. “An event like this can only take place at Maracanã.” Next Sunday Vasco will meet Botafogo, the only club in Rio for whom Romário has never played, at Maracanã. Romario has scored 30 goals in his last 38 games, including a hat trick that he netted in his previous game. Romário would love to score his 1,000th goal from the penalty spot. “I would be a dream come true to convert from the spot, as everybody will pay even more attention. I will be more nervous that I was at the World Cup 1994 final. I hope our opponent’s goalkeeper will understand my emotions.”
