Brazilian footballer Romario was one of the greatest strikers that have ever played the game and throughout his career as a top level footballer he shone for both the various clubs he played for as well as the Brazilian national team. Romario emerged as a teenage sensation in the mid 1980s in Brazil and after shining for Vasco da Gama and the Brazilian national team in major international tournaments he moved to Dutch club PSV Eindhoven that really propelled him into the limelight. After scoring at a staggering rate for five seasons he then went on to play for Barcelona in one of their most famous teams under Johann Cryuff. Romario’s greatest moment as a footballer came in the year 1994 when he led Brazil to their 4th World Cup triumph in the United States and three years later he won the Copa America. He played on at the highest level of Brazilian club football till the age of 39 and kept scoring consistently despite waning powers. After his retirement from professional football, Romario entered politics and established a successful career. He opposed Brazil’s decision to host the World Cup in 2014 due to the huge costs involved.
