Romario is one of the most prolific goalscorers in history of the game. He scored more than 1,000 goals during his career including unofficial matches. He is one of the greatest first touch goal-getters of all-time, processed great shooting and dribbling technique. While Romario was sometimes criticized for “Disappearing” during games, he would then crop up and score one or more goals. A Master of Zen-like “no-play,” He would let the action sweep around him until it was his time to strike. When man-marked, He often stopped moving, reasoning that his marker’s natural tendency was to move rather than stand still. After his markers moved, He was off in the other direction for a pass or goal opportunity. He even proved himself to score an important goal with his header in World Cup 1994 semi-final round against Sweden. Because of his freedom style of attitude, He played for Barcelona for two seasons and back to play in Brazil in the rest of his career. That affected him not to prove himself in the highest standard level anymore. Romario is the second most prolific scorer (official match) in history of football only to Josef Bican.
