Now Romario can retire

Is that Romario's count again - you know where he counts all goals in friendlies, exhibition matches, jumpers for goalposts and beach football?

Exactly!

Has anyone got his official stat's? Excluding all the 'jumper for goal posts' matches.

Not to hand Bluenut but I did read an article that states at least 200 of his goals were scored in junior or non-competitive games!

Still a quality striker in his day though.

According to this, he is counting youth-team games, friendlies, testimonial matches - so in actual fact, he is nowhere near 1000 goals.

To be fair, there have been similiar claims about Pele's career goals total too. A genuine record or not, Romario is one of the all time greats. Not up there with Pele, but a great striker nonetheless.

Much like Romario, Pele's 1000 goals total includes army matches, testimonials, exhibitions, pre-season tournaments and the like. The sort of matches only a Liverpool fan would include!

Any idea if Pele's record is recognised by FIFA? icon_confused.gif

Apparently not. According to this, Pele only scored 765 goals in competitive matches. Note Romario's total, too.

That's quite interesting. Romario has scored more goals than Pele when only the goals in official matches are counted.

I've seen documentaries and read stories about football history and Pele's 1000+ career goals are always presented as an official world record. I wonder why...I mean, he was an exceptional footballer even if he didn't score over 1000 career goals. icon_confused.gif

Romario is a conceded arsehole...my little nephew tried to get his autograph at the airport and he refused, what a prick!

In marked contrast, he actually shook my hand and had a little chat in albeit broken English...

I agree that he is conceited!
