Romário de Souza Faria came close to scoring his 1,000th goal in his career, but did not find the net in Vasco da Gama’s 2-0 defeat against Botafogo at the famous Maracanã stadium in Rio on Sunday night. Romário got a few chances to score, but the former PSV striker remained stuck on a career tally of 999.
Romário did not make much of an impact in the first half, but the former PSV icon definitely made his mark after the break. He shot into the side netting, sent a lob just over the goal and had another effort go wide of the goal. Nearly 60,000 people watched the match and media representatives had also turned up in large numbers, so massive interested is to be expected on Wednesday as well, when Vasco meet Gama in a Brazilian Cup tie. Romário’s team will play Cabofriense in a championship game next Sunday. To be continued.
